I have a computer with a 266Mhz AMD k6-2 in it, im going got put a 500 Mhz AMD k6-2 in it. Im wondering what i should use for a heat transfer from the processor to the heat ink, a grease type or a pad and where to buy it. Also should the original heat sink that came with the 266 Mhz processor be enough to cool the 500Mhz? THANKS

If there's good airflow inside your case, You won't need to buy another heatsink. There's a fan that came with the heatsink, right? Thermal grease would be OK.
