Question About Hs/mobo Setup Compatability

Hey guys, i used to be a member here a few years ago and I can't seem to find my ol' username so I re-registered.

 

Anyway, after having an ancient amd opteron 170 system die on me, i decided to upgrade just a lil bit. Got a Asus p5qe p45 mobo and a q6600 intel quad cpu along with some ocz 4gb ram.

 

My question was, i want to re-use my old heatsink i had which was a thermaltake big typhoon (with a big 120mm crazy . delta fan); i'm wondering if this HS will fit the mobo layout? (heres the heatsink: http://www.overclockercafe.com/Reviews/coo...t_Big_Typhoon/)

 

and how effective that cooling setup will be with a quadcore system?

 

I haven't been in the overclocking scene for quite some time so im' really rusty haha, hoping for some input.. Thanks!

Well it should fit the following sockets: Intel LGA775, Intel P4 478 pin, AMD K7, AMD K8, AMD Sempron

 

And that board is LGA775, so i'd say you are good to go :) As for effectiveness i'd say there are probably better solutions about but they wont be massively better so just try the typhoon and see what it's like.
