Hello everyone!

I just had a PowerMac G4 QuickSilver 2001 (the original model) with a 733MHz single CPU from a good friend.

I want to upgrade the CPU and I already know that the CPU from the Dual 800MHz Quicksilver will fit and work in my computer, but my question is about the heatsink.

The Dual 800MHz CPU I saw on eBay doesn't come with an heatsink, so: can I use my heatsink from the single 733MHz with the Dual 800MHz or will it overheat? I could put a second 60mm fan attached to the heatsink to improve the airflow, will it be enough cooling?



PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), G4 QuickSilver 2001 - 733MHz - 1GB
