I am about to do a change up.
i have a amd x2 4400+ that is water cooled and a phenom 9850 black edition that is air cooled, i plan to move the phenom to my water cooled system which puts the 4400+ on the air cooled system.

does anyone know if the stock heatsink for the 9850 will fit the 4400+

it'd be nice if i didn't have to buy a heatsink

it would depend on the layout of the board really.. best bet is to test fit it, though i think they are different sockets and may not fit directly without mocking something up yourself or buying a mounting kit for the other socket type
