Air-cooling AM2

Hey guys, well I finally made the switch to a 64bit AM2 processor... I have it all built up, but in my haste of purchasing a HSF I got the zalman cnps9500 which does not have the bracket to mount on an AM2 so I have to resell it and buy another.... since I bought a stock fan to get it running I have some time before I need t buy another, and I wanted to know what the best aircooling solution would be for the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black edition

Never too early for a bump.

I'm running a Thermalright SI-128 on a 6000+ in my shop rig. Installation was painless, cooling is decent but not great. (46 loaded at stock speeds)

It is the only heatsink I have any actual experience with on AM2 so you might want to check around a bit before purchasing one..
