Re: does the type of heatsink really matter?
You got the OEM/Bulk version. The Retail comes with the heatsink. Yes, it does matter. Obviously, some are smaller with weaker fans and just aren't as capable of keeping the processor cool. Besides, I SERIOUSLY doubt one made for as low as a 1.2GHz would even fit the sempron. That one you found is probably for like a SocketA/370...

They get me from 0 to 1...
