    Hi Guys and Girls,
    I have just bought a brand spanking new AMD XP 2000 and a nice Coolermaster HHC-001 from dabs to go with it. Unfortunately, Dabs screwed up my order and sent me an HCC-001 fan instead.

    Given that i dont want to overclock my CPU, just run it at normal speed, can i use my old 4700rpm fan, which worked fine with my 800mhz duron with my new XP 2000 until i sort out the problem with my new fan (2 - 3 days).

    Also i got some Coolermaster premium thermal compound, if i use this in conjunction with the old fan and new CPU, will i be able to easily remove the old fan from the new CPU when my new fan shows up? Or will it stick like glue?

    What do you think?

    i have the hhc-001. it's pretty good. thinking there might be better out there, though... everyone's raving about this volcano 7+. but if you keep the stock fan on that hhc-001 (6800rpm!) then you'll have no problem with overheating... just NOISE. i have a near silent fan on mine and never get above 47 at full load in a warm room.

    i also have some of that "premium" coolermaster thermal compound... i wouldn't use it. it's just not as good as arctic silver 3. trust me on this, man. and fyi, neither one sticks like glue.

    and, just to backup the advice, do NOT use that old heatsink. a 1.7ghz athlon xp put out about 3 times the heat of a 800mhz duron.
