Both Toledo cores?

Probably not a good idea. They both run at the same clock speed with the same total cache so power dissipation will be higher in the dual core, but not twice as high.

If the 3700 is a claw hammer then it might be ok. The older, larger geometry clawhammer chips used more power.

I'd look for a cheaper aftermarket HSF instead of risking it. You should be able to find one for under $20.

It should probably work.

My 4400+ ran cooler than my old 3400+.

I would probably consider investing in an aftermarket cooling solution if you find the temps are on the high side.

I haven't had a single issue thus far with my proc, but I am using a zalman cooler :) Its just quieter.

Wouldnt the 3700 cooler work, since they are same socket therefore same shape?
It would just run hot right?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
