Can either of these be used as a stop-gap arrangement?
Would the AMD HSF work if I have a bracket for the 775?
A friend of mine has a Core i7. he has the stock HSF for that lying unused. If I borrow it from him, would that work on my socket 775 processor?
The i7 has two different sizes. both of which i think are slightly larger than the 775. U may need to drill 2-3 new holes in that plastic piece if u want to try to use it.
