heatsink/fan recomendations

my athlon xp 2000+ is on the way to my house as i speak. i still cannot make my mind about about a heatskin/fan to buy. the two models i had looked at were the TT Volcano 7+ and the CoolerMaster HHC-001. I really do not know which of the two to buy, or if there are any else out there i should consider.

Welcome to AOA Forums, TweakMan278! Best bang for buck is the Thermalright AX-7. It mounts an 80mm fan, so I suggest making sure that there's enough space around your Socket A before buying one. Pretty sure that the AX-7 is 80mm by 80mm. A way to find out if this HSF will fit on your mainboard is to go to: www.micforg.co.jp/mb_inf_pal8045e.html .

This is a chart of motherboards that the Alpha PAL-8045 doesn't fit, as well as the mobo's that it does fit. How did an Alpha HSF get ino this post about the Thermalright AX-7? Only because both HSF's are the same size!

thanks for the link...but the Thermalright AX-7 doesnt fit my version of the K7S5A. Do you happen to have any other recomendations. Or do you know which of the HHC-001 and the Volcano 7+ are more effective?

In the sized for a 60mm fan category, the best bang for buck, AFAIK, is the Thermalright SK-6. It's $26, including your choice of one of three fans-- a wussed, or civilized on the ears, or a serious 60mm. Plus ~$7 for shipping, from www.2cooltek.com .

Or, an OCZ Goliath, with no fan=$21 plus ~$6 shipping from www.1coolpc.com .

If expense isn't an issue, it's hard to beat a Thermalright SLK-600. It's $41,(with no 60mm fan) including shipping, from Newegg.

The V7+ is horrible........ the base is warped on nearly everyone- and its over priced- get the SK-6-Spyder

Hey no joke....This is also with 3 92mm 60 CFM fans running...

 

And my case temp is 27C...

 

That thing from Antec has a 5500 rpm fan on it. It actually does ok especially for the price. I only grabbed it for a quick fix until I found something else. With the temps I have I see no point to hurry and spend another 25 bucks. Especially when I just dropped the coin for my GF4TI card...

Mea culpa. Again. According to Dan's Data, the Volcano 7+ is an RCH better than the HHC-001. This supposes that no warped base will wreck one's HSF experience.

Hmm. I guess that the AX-7 now fits the mainboard in question? Perhaps some removal of the mass of the HS will be necessary? Oh well, aluminum isn't difficult to cut. No machine shop required. The AX-7 is still the economy/cooling power champ.

Yeah, but they all had to buy ear plugs, right? With that Delta Black Label, you will want ear plugs
