Hi, my friend has an athlon xp 2400+ and an nforce 2. For his bday, im getting him a mobile 2500+ and 1GB of pc3200. I plan on clocking it to 3200+ speeds for him. The question is, will the stock heatsink the 2400+ comes with be able to handle a mobile 2500+ clocked at 2.2Ghz(3200+)? I will be using arctic silver 5 on it if that helps. Thanks in advance.
