    Q1: which fan is better for the Hyper212+, stock fan or the Noctua NF-F12

    Q2: i recently dug up my old PC "Dino" (specs on left), and wanted to overclock the CPU, is there a trick to it or should i just set it up as a K6-2 500 on the mobo's switch and jumpers?

    I'd stick with the stock fan and see if it meets your needs, no point spending extra if your happy with what you have already, upgrade only if you feel the need.

    As for the K6 you won't get much of an overclock out of that at all but you should be able to overckock via the BIOS if you find this easier.

    About the fan i already have it and was just wondering not available anymore so stock fan will do, but for the K6 i'm not that serious about it rather just wanted to experiment with it to satisfy my curiosity. :p
