Thermalright SI-97

Well...I'm not sure if I got ripped off or not, but I found a Thermalright SI-97 for $40 (after shipping). I couldn't resist, since I'd heard good things about them from Graham, Gizmo, and a couple of other people. I got a 92mm Antec fan to throw on top of it (It's for my 2600M since I gave away my Volcano-12 after I got my 64 proc)

I couldn't find any of the all copper ones for socket A for sale ANYWHERE and I figure myself lucky to have found this one. I needed it fairly fast since my mobile is getting way to warm for comfort and I'm being forced to run it at only 11*200@1.675V (grr)

What do you guys think?

Should work almost as well or much the same.

Seems like a good price, on a good cooler...
Not to criticize but, AFAIK, the si97 is a socket A only heatsink. As good as it is, I wouldn't buy a HS today unless it was compatible with the newer sockets.

No worries, Steve. This HS/F will be with the 8RDA3+ it's going on forever. Won't be giving away a second heatsink/fan.

Besides...I figure I'll ALWAYS have a socket a floating around somewhere.

Wow...turned the comp off at 58C, installed everything, full load with .25V and 200mhz more and I'm stable at 44C. Same settings as before (when this setup was in a better ventilated case) and 3C cooler. I'm a firm believer in Thermalright now. Just...wow...

Edit: After burn in, 12.5*200@1.725V at 41C. I turned the AC on too, so I'm sure that helped...I'm still very impressed.
