Default Cpu

Ok, so now that I know what CPU I want for my Inspiron 531, I was wondering it the heatsink/fan it comes w/ will fit in my computer.

And if not, could I use my old AMD 64 x2 4000+ heatsink/fan?

Btw, this CPU is compatible w/ my system right?

I'm sorry I'm not being very helpful, I only know that it's an AMD Athlon 64 x2 4000+ 2.11GHz - that's all that was specified.

So..here's some pics of the fan/heatsink:


In this pic, w/ the arrows..I'm not sure if I am suppose to remove the screws to release the heatsink?










Hope this helps.

TBH, it's doubtful, I don't expect a BIOS update is released very often for your board and you'd need an update to run that as it is the new 65nm 6000+, you could try looking for the older 90nm 6000+ if it's still available.

Like I said in your other thread, I really think you should consider a new motherboard.
