Heatsink for 2nd processor
I just got a great deal on a used Mac Pro 2008 with a single Quad Core 2.8 processor. The seller provided a 2nd identical processor, which he had never got round to installing. No 2nd heatsink. Looking online, especially eBay, prices for the original heatsink are high, e.g. $80-90 and up.
There's a 2nd heatsink that many are selling and I was wondering if it works, has problems, etc. It's a Northbridge heatsink, described as being for the Mac Pro 2008. Prices are in the $20 range.
Would this Northbridge heatsink work? Are there known problems? Its design is somewhat different from the "usual" heatsinks advertised as for the 2008 Mac Pro, which are bigger.
Is this a good question?
