upgrading AMD64 3200 CPU - compatibility chart cooling block

Postby shugarhi » Thu Feb 20, 2014 6:36 am

Hey guys,

I have a koolance water block that fits my AMD64 3200 CPU. I am looking to upgrade my CPU and was wondering if this water block would be compatible with the newer AMD CPUs (or Intel's for that matter). Does anyone know of a compatibility chart for these things?

Each model of CPU cooler has specific compatibility listings. You need to list the model of the CPU cooler not the model of CPU.

Hey izerous, thanks for the reply. I have the following two CPU block and was hoping to find it to be compatible with a more present day CPU

CPU-305-H06

Thanks,
Jeff

That block is severely outdated and on a modern CPU even if you had the mounting adapters it wouldn't be able to properly keep it cool. If you update the system and want to keep it liquid cooled you will need to replace the block.
