    Stock AMD cooler for 8500LE?

    hmm i just found an old amd stoxk heatsink in my cupboard well its a coolermaster that used 2 b on my TBird 900. Well i started thiking of a use for it and wondered if it would go on my Radeon 8500LE, well it looks liek it would fit but im just thinking of the cooling would it need a fan on it for starters and would i be able to overclock with no fan on it?

    If you're gonna do it may as well do it right... I'd put a fan on it. I doubt you would get all that great of results without a fan.

    I put one on my GeForce 3 Ti500. My advice is put a fan on it. I ran 3dmark without a fan, and darn near sizzled my hand off. After putting a lilttle 30 mm fan on it (superglue), it wasn't even warm after 3 loops of 3dmark.
