I took apart a very old custom computer, and wondered if it would work for my new computer that I just ordered and didn't even build yet?
here's my build:

I wouldn't eve3n try a heatsink out of a old compuuter.

According to the specs for the CPU you included the link to it comes with a heatsink & fan.

I'm not bog on AMD CPU's but unless you plan on doing some heavy overclocking the heatsink/fan that comes with the CPU should be fine.
