  1. Hello Friends.
    My motherboard is FIC K7M-NF18G, the whole stats on this board can be seen here. http://www.fic.com.tw/product/motherboard/1stmainboard_detail.aspx?model_id=137
    I am also running a AMD Anthlon XP 2800+ CPU.
    Here is my problem. The fan/heatsinc combo thats on this puppy is still overheating my CPU. I was looking to install a Volcano 9 combo

    on this bad boy.
    I dont know if they would work together or that this volcano 9 combo would fit. Thats why I need your help.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks

    Hi gay, the most important thing you have to watch when fixing any processor is that the number 1 pin of the processor should go into number one hole of the processor hole on the motherboard, you will see the number 1 pin hole clearly on the processor slot & you could read the motherbord maual for more explanation.
