OK I replaced a 35 watt Celeron processor with a 65 watt Core 2 Duo E6300 1.8 GHz processor both LGA 775.
Processor temps never exceed 75 degrees Celsius and max Core 2 Duo temp is 61.4 degrees Celsius.
All aluminum factory heat sink was reused and at physical touching by hand heat sink is barely warm to touch at base of heat sink.
I found an OEM Dell heat sink that has a copper base plate with tubes through steel or aluminum cooling fins.
My question will I gain any improvement by replacing the all aluminum heat sink with the copper base heat sink.
Computer is working great without any random stalling or shutdowns.
What would you do.
Core 2 Duo processor
