Reccomend me a better Heatsink and Fan for an Athlon64 X2 3800+
(running stock cooling as of now)
I just bought the SI-120. it's light and very, very good. Add a Panaflo fan of the appropriate size and you can't lose.
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
are good too.
i think i'm going to get the thermalrihgt xp-120
Zalman CNPS7000-Cu whisper quiet, on high speed but completely quiet on low, and great cooling
Koolance Exos Water Cooling
Go for it, that thing kicks ass. I wish a Thermalright passive cooler would fit my Aspire X-QPack case . Guess that's one of the prices I pay for mobility...
I just got the Zalman CNPS9500. Its a hell of a lot bigger than I expected, I'd say about the size of a softball in diameter. Fairly quiet with speed control and keeps my FX-53 in the mid 30s idle
Best (reasonably-sized) heatsink ever. It fits entirely within AMD-specified measurements and it conducts heat so well that you can go ten minutes with a dead fan before you start having a heat problem.
EDIT: Or so my experience says.
That HSF is old-school. 3 years ago it was king, but it can't compare to the heatsinks around today.
I beg to differ. I have one right now and it's awesome.
