I didn't think about the heatsink wouldn't cover the whole chip so I guess I should have put it on the heatsink like the instructions said but now I have excess on parts of the cpu not covered. Should I...

    [SOLVED] I5 CPU with heatsink but no fan

    I have a new GPU a MSI R9 390 8GB and it will only fit in the case if I remove the CPU fan. I still would have the cpu heatsink on and the GPU fan seems like it would work as the CPU fan since the GPU fan is right where the CPU fan was. Would this work I don't want to fry my CPU?
