Windows 7: xp to windows 7

I just downloaded Hmonitor. Is speedfan better? Well in any case the sempron fan is not the best to go along with the cpu. I tested the cpu with prime95, while monitoring the temperatures on Hmonitor and it shot up to the yellow zone with 50C. I think I'm gonna need a new fan.

I think in this case bigger is better.
If it has a three pin connector you could test it by connecting it to one of your motherboard fan connectors. It doesn't need to be installed you can just hold it in your hand and see if it spins up. I wouldn't keep using the sempron heatsink fan.

Thank you alphanumeric. I knew I could count on a reply from you Well anyway, I bought a new fan. The mobo didnt have any other 4 pin connectors and I didnt want to risk unplugging the semrpon fan. So i attached the new fan to the old heat sink and its working ok now.

The gigantic heatsink has such a flimsy foot. I was scared I'd crush the processor because the heatsink and fan weigh in at almost 600grams. Its working fine now, thank god. I think the difference between the old and new processor is slightly visible.

I'm wondering if I should put another extra 2gb into the RAM n installing the 64bit version of Win 7. I saw online that most people say you need at least 3gb to run the 64bit.

Thank you for your reply. Cant wait to load Win 7 on my hmm 'new' machine haha

I recommend that you bring your RAM up to at least 4Gb for the 64 bit version. I think you will be well satisfied with 4 Gb.

I'm putting another 2 gig in mine to bring it up to 4 gigs when my income tax refund arrives. Adding more RAM is the best bang for the buck as far as I can tell.
