Alright! Got my new E8500 Processor, need help installing
Ok, the last PC I built was mine - over 2 years ago. I've added a new GPU, but that's about it.
So I got this new E8500 to replace my current E6400.
What all is involved with replacing the processor? Is it simple enough to pull out the old chip and put the new one in?
Also, how is the stock Heat Sink? Should I replace it?
