Need a recommendation for AMD XP HSF

Am into overclocking. Choices are somewhat limited.

Volcano 7+ ...have one of this now on a OC'ed XP1700+ T-Bred "B" and am pretty happy with it... although I would want one with more err... cooling.

Getting an XP2100+ T-Bred "B" tomorrow and wondering what HSF to get with it:

Options are:

Volcano 7+
Volcano 11
Globalwin C4-88T
Cooler Master X-Dream

Cant wait to order one by mail, and these are the best I can find. Any help would be appreciated.

Doesn't look like there's anything wrong with the Volcano 7+ that you already have, TBH. Personally, I'd go with a GlobalWin CAK4-88T. I'm prejudiced against Thermaltake HSF's, but that's my problem.

Why not bookmark www.dansdata.com/coolercomp.htm , for future HSF reference. Big collection of HSF reviews. Maybe there's a better one out there?

Yeap, I have one CAK-88T here and it's quite good, quiet LED fan, copper heatsink and excellent clip design.

Actually, the Volcano 7+ stays with the XP1700+ while the new one (a CAK4-88T based on your recommendations) gets paired up with the XP2100+.

I guess my main complaint with the Volcano &+ is a really cant run it at 5800rpm... too noisy.

Almsot forget... thanks.

Any chance of a mini-review of the GW CAK4-88T, Alexandrus? It's not listed at Dan's Data. You know, like which motherboard you use it on, how to overcome tricky installation hassles, why the SK7 clip is so good, like that there..? No obligation! Only if you have the time.
