Hi
Ive got a 1 gig athlon at the moment and im getting a 1.4 gig athlon tomorrow but it doesnt come with a heat sink or fan. So I was wanting to know if I can use my 1gig athlon hsf on the 1.4 athlon for the time being until I get a new hsf.

yes, if you can please tell us if the HSF that came with your 1ghz athlon is the retail hsf, then we might be able to help out a bit.

cheers,

dave

hmmm...a 1.4GHz T-Bird gets pretty damn hot...i would recommend a copper or copper-base HSF...what are your temps right now(with the 1GHz T-Bird)?

If has COOPER base and a lot of big aluminium fins seems ok to me...
Btw to be more sure about stability and temps you must take a more effective heatsink - CPU Fan combo....

the cpu at the moment is around 34 degrees, and I dont think ive ever really seen it get over 40 -45 but ive got three case fans also which keeps the system temp around 25. The heat sink I think is just made out of steel or aluminium it hasnt got any copper on it

your temps look decent enough, but then the T-Birds don't have a built-in thermal-diode, so it's just the socket-thermistor...
i still recommend getting a copper or copper-base HSF, but you can try your current aluminum one...i guess with your airflow it will be sufficient atleast to keep the CPU from burnin' up
make sure you clean the Heatsink thoroughly with some alcohol(wipe off every last residue of thermal compound) and apply thermal compound(a paper-thin layer, cover the DIE only) to the CPU before putting the HSF on.

watch your temps closely with the 1.4GHz T-Bird...if CPU temp keeps rising beyond 60°C, turn your machine off and get a better HSF.

From what you are saying, you have the same HSF that came with my OEM 1.4 I bought at a local dealer. It worked...IT was very hot, but I could hit 1.6 at default voltage....that chip later died, but thats another story.

Eep, you overclocked a Thunderbird 1.4 with a cheap aluminum cooler?
