    Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ940XCJ4DGI - Processors - Desktops
    Newegg.com - Foxconn Cinema Premium AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    Just got these to build a new rig and like a dumb *ss didn't realize cpu didn't come with heatsink/fan. Any advice on what to get? Would like to find one specifically for the cpu i got but really will be fine with whatever works/is cheapest. Not gonna be OC or anything. Any help/links would be appreciated

    Unfortunately already got everything else in the mail. For the price i usually lean towards amd myself. The one you linked is the cpu i will be getting when i build a rig for myself. Gonna sell the one i'm working on now so don't wanna have to wait, plus the phenom II 945 was only 95 bucks.

    eh at this point probably worth waiting it out. only a matter of time before AMD goes to hyper threading and they're pretty good about sticking to socket types...yay!
