AMD 64bit CPU coolers

What are a good, reliable, CPU cooler (excluding water cooling), that will keep my CPU under 40°C when I overclock the system bus from 200mhz to 220mhz.

you can get off scott free using the stock heatsink and some as5 or arctic silver cremique. what are your temps?? and ive heard of overclocks with the stock heatsink on 3200+'s all the way up to 2.48 ghz with legit temps. good luck.

Yeah I know I could, but I rather wouldnt. I would prefer over-kill than 'only-just'.

under 40°C? maybe at idle but I will be as bold to say there isn't an air cooler that can keep an athlon 64 under 40°C without a) a hurricane creating beast of a fan. or b) very low room temps.
Why do you need to keep it under 40°C might I ask? Your ok with these chips running in the 70's, though 50-60 is a good target. The best air cooling available is the Thermalright xp-120 and stick a powerful 120mm fan on

Yeah, sorry my mistake I meant at idle. So you think that a Thermalright xp-120 is a good bet? I'll look into it.

well it's the best bet
but it seems like there might be compatability issues with gigabyte boards, even the XP-90 might have so unless anyone can confirm it will be compatable I'd hold off on that one.
Your next best bet is a CNPS7700-Cu, zalman lists your board as compatable.
I use a Zalman CNSP7700-AlCu which is the half alu, half copper version and my idle temps are bang on 40°C, with my full load being 60°C and this is in a quiet system with slow fans, 2 hdd's and a 6800

best A64 ive used is the gigabyte 3d rocket cooler. looks cool, is cool, has LEDs that are a real hit with teh ladies.

performance is almost as good as high end thernalright at half the cost. you really arnt overclocking much at 10%, so spend as little as you can my friend. and dont hate the stock cooler just because its stock.

btw keep in mind hes using a 130nm clawhammer not a 90nm winchester so it uses a bit more power.

I've got the 3D CoolerPro from gigabyte...works pretty darn good...but needs lots of air. in my case, it's great; in my wife's case, with modest flow, it overheats the XP-M at stock settings.

if your looking for around 40º on a 3200+ then id look into the kingwin K8CU-8025. have that in my overclocked 2800+ and it keeps idle temps at 35to 26 and load temps under 55. which is pretty darn good for a 25% overclock.

there are compatability issues with the XP range and gigabyte boards.
I also wouldn't put the gigabyte cooler in the same league as the zalman and thermalrights, from most reviews I've seen it has a c/w of around 0.4-0.5 and it's also not that quiet or cheap, the cheapest one is the same price as the Zalman CNPS7000B-ALCU and this is a quieter and more efficient cooler.

Sorry, but your incorrect. Its a .13(funny looking 'u') NewCastle.

I dont hate stock because its stock. I want another one because im gonna push the system bus up to 220mhz.

BTW: WHAT IS THE HIGHEST MHZ PCI, RAM, and AGP SHOULD RUN AT?

Yeah, I was tossing up between a CNPS7700-Cu and that Giga-Byte GT rocket cooler.

Kingwin....i'll look into it.

I was also looking at getting the Zalman 800D heatpipe.

There isn't a limit, just what ever is stable for you, this will be much lower if you are using sata or gigabit ethernet though
I've had my k8t800 at over 230mhz so I can't see 220mhz being much trouble
The zalman is also a much better cooler than the gigabyte, and no where near as loud
The zalman dual heatpie cooler would be sufficient for a 9600xt as long as you have good case air flow but consider the arctic cooling cooler. It's cheaper and you can turn the fan down low enough that it will be inaudible and it's better suited for overclocking and far easier to install

Good case air-flow, he says.

Just read my signature, to see how many fans I have.

My Zalman All/Cu 7000 keeps my 3.2Ghz Prescott nice and cool at 34C. You can get one for ~40 bucks on Newegg
