    Actually the heatsink supplied with the Semprons is different from one you got. Similar design, but about half the size.

    the aluminium section of the sempron 140 heatsink i have is 2mm hieght difference to the one that came with my FX6300 and is of the same design..
    I no longer have the stock fan from the sempron cooler.
    From memory the sempron cooler fan was different and around half the hieght of the FX fan

    hang on...the fx has more fins.

    Athlon II and Sempron no longer exist they are selling them EOL. This is fact welcome to the new AMD lineup. FX 8XX0>FX 6XX0>FX 4XX0 for the AM3+ series FM2 is obviously different.

    No its a solid aluminum heatsink....The heatsink that comes with an Intel CPU has a copper slug that doesn't cover the entire CPU and the fins go out in a circle and split on the ends...That CM fan has a square center that covers the entire CPU and its fins aren't in a circular fashion...That CM heatsink is actually rated for a higher TDP then the stock Intel heatsinks...

    Its cheaper to make and only comes with a 3 pin fan just like the ones you get in prebuilt machines

    From the specs

    Anyways that is only a 95 watt cpu and any heatsink fan rated for a cpu with a TDP of 125w is more then enough


    EDIT: and the AMD heatsinks have a different size square in the center for different cpu's....I noticed this with the heatsinks that came with my old AII 635 and the one that came with my Ph II x2 555 they are different heights and have different sized centers

    mines a bit bigger than the fx ones that you get with the CPUs. [plus mine has a different fan which seems to be quieter than the fx one.

    I also have one of these, sent with a processor i RMA'd and got that along with the new processor for my troubles. Actually pretty decent. Though it was difficult to remove from the board once on. The clips didnt seem to line up right.

    i have that problem too, they seem to stick to the CPU. you need to twist them.

    the clips do line up, but they are a bit hard to get it in. However if you remove the fan mounting along with the fan, it becomes a breeze to mount it in place.

    Did eventually sort it, replaced with a 212, and twisting did the job.

    Not all Intel coolers have the copper slug, the lower end processors come with an all aluminum heatsink. But yeah, that cooler master fan is definitely not made by Intel.

    Well, for FX-6300 I would recommend Enermax 40-TS air cooler, it's in the same league asCM 212 EVO. Does anybody have ever seen alumunium heatpipes for CPU? I got it in my graphic card, wonder if it's better than copper heatpipes. The base is unknown..

    Are you sure that they're aluminum? I think that they are just nickel plated copper heatpipes as I haven't never seen aluminum ones.

    That's to be confirmed, as LeadTek Service guy said it contains pure water.

    The heatpipes internally use water but if their color is chrome n not copper color they normally are nickel or zinc dipped for looks

    That would make me a fool to see zinc as aluminum. Alas, how on earth can I prove these heatpipes are copper or aluminum.. If the guy in LeadTek were true, I do hope it is Cuprum. Otherwise, water in Aluminum? No go..
