Which cooler would you keep????

Hello everyone!! I am currently upgrading my system and am having a bit of a dilemma. I am upgrading to an Abit NF7-S with my new (just got it today) Athlon XP-M 2600+ IQYHA. Other components are 1 gig of corsair value select, (I know it sounds crappy, but that is all I could afford!!), 120GB SATA HDD and either a new Extreme Volcano 12 Copper heatsink and fan made by Thermaltake with the cool mountable fan controller either in the front 3 1/2" bay or in an empty expansion slot in the back. Or, I can't decide whether or not to keep my SLK-800 Copper heatsink made by Thermalright with aftermarket Blue LED fan. The SLK-800 has been keeping my 1700+ B-Core cool for over a year now. What I want to do is put the Chaintech 7VJL Deluxe board in a different case with the gig of PC2100, 120 gig IDE HDD, and the 1700+ B-Core. Then put all of my new stuff in the case that I am taking this stuff out of.

Ok, what my dilemma is--should I keep the SLK-800 with the 1700+ which I can OC to 2.32GHz with 1.8V and use the Thermaltake with the XP-M 2600+ IQYHA, or should I swap it out and use the SLK-800 with the 2600+ IQYHA and use the Thermaltake with the 1700+????

Help guys!! I don't know if there would be a huge difference in cooling between the two, but I have heard that a lot of people swear by the Thermalrights.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks, Steve

slk is the better cooler...i'd put in on the mobile to get the highest clocks possible, and the best performance ....averaging the two out, getting the mobile as high as possible will yeild the best results.

if you have the cash to invest in it i would reccomend the coolmaster areo 7+ it it copper,shived with a hamstercage fan that cools your cpu center,standerd fans have a "blind spot" in its center where your cpu is the hottest.it dose a good job of keeping my cpu frosty 36c idle 42c loaded on a worm day 2500+ oc to 3200+ the cooler runs about 40$
