Maintenance of AMD x64 Processor


There are actually no special considerations for maintenance of an AMDx64 processor. You maintain it the same way you would maintain any other brand of processor.

Here's how to ensure that your AMD processor lasts a long time:

1. Make sure the heatsink and fan are installed properly as per instruction on the processor's installation manual. Let the computer technician at the store install it for you if you don't know how. The stock heatsink and fan is already adequate in keeping your processor in it's proper operating temperature.

2. Keep the heatsink and fan clean. Open your CPU chassis at least once every 3 months and clean up the heatsink with a paintbrush and vacuum cleaner to remove any dust buildup on the processor heatsink.

3. Enable AMD Cool n' Quiet in your BIOS. This automatically adjusts the processor's power consumption (and consequently, the amount of heat generated) depending on the CPU load.

4. Install a temperature monitoring app on your operating system. Core Temp ( is one such tool. You can even configure it to turn off your PC automatically once a certain temperature is reached.  Some applications can even monitor fan speed and voltage on your motherboard to give early warning of hardware failure.

5. Install a 3rd party cooling solution if you intend to over clock your processor.
