Which cooler for the A64?

I am looking at coolers for the A64 and there isn't many to look at!

What are people using? Just the retail stock fan?

Is the stock cooler good enough for now?

There aren't a lot available, are there?

My parts won't be here until tomorrow but I got the Thermaltake Silent Boost . I'll report back on how it works out.

Another interesting HSF for the A64 is the Gigabyte GH-PCU21-VG but it's twice as much $$ as the TT.

I went for the stock cooler in the retail package. To be honest it looks horrible.

BUT, it's not a bad heatsink, not the best but not bad. I also left the standard thermal paste on it for now, as it's the Shin-Etsu stuff. Once I've had a chance to get things running the way I want I'll take it out and apply AS to see if that actually improves things.

There was a decent review here

I am biased but the Cooljag JVC681 is the best I've used - available via. Actron / EPoX distribution channels in the UK.

I couldn't wait so I ordered the retail chip with heatsink. Will have to look in to some others - I'm sure more will appear before long...

I'm looking at http://www.epox.org/cooljag/ but I don't see that one on the list. Would we have to phone the sales number to buy one?

I haven't worked with an A64 yet, so my question may sound pretty ignorant.

Looking at one of these HSF attaching mechanisms, would it be possible to make a converter for Socket A heatsinks? I'm perfectly happy with the coolers I use now, and would like to use them if possible when I move forward... SK7 and SLK900a.

I'm not sure about air coolers but I have seen adaptors for waterblocks on the go. Biggest problem I can see would be extending the length of the clip.

I got my rig up and running today - the Thermaltake Silent Boost seems to be OK. In a 68F room and running the processor at 100% (and the FSB at 210), it's around 100-102F. It has a nice quiet fan and I really like the way it mounts. Maybe they're all like this but you just flip a lever to clamp it down.

Koolance has a waterblock for'em, but they want you to buy an adapter as well. Caution the 200 won't work, if you go that route, get the 300 and the adapter, then ignore their instructions as they are hopelessly dated on the blocks install.

You will need to have the board out of the case to install the waterblock.

Steve, take a look at the adapters at Koolance, they may give you some ideas.

See sig. I only had to modify the alum cover plate ever so slightly to allow the 4 studs to fit. I run a steady 42 C at 236 FSB with a case temp of 32 C.

on these 64 systems they only use the two holes instead of the four we are used to on the xp/barton mbs. i have the 900U and i thought about trying to mod the plate to work on the new 64 platform but just wound up buying the 948U and it works nice i must admit. well worth the 40 bucks! i gues you could make a plate but if you see how the new 948U installs youd probly just want to go that route,...

peace perc,

Has anyone tried the Shuttle SN85G4? I was wondering how the heatpipe on that works with the AMD64.

I'm currently running the Gigabyte GH-PCU21-VG. Looks cool and is not as loud as my old SLK900 w/Tornado. Temps are at 44c CPU and 28c Case temp. I like it!!! Check it out Here

I am getting a load temp of 41c at 1.55v 220mhz with the stock AMD cooler.

BTW, use the ClockGen tool for experimenting with overclocking (if you're not already using it).

peace perc,
One of the things I liked about the Chaintech board was the 4 holes for mounting studs....a feature not shared by many other socket 754 boards.
