just ordered one of these cpu`s,whats the best fans out there for it?
Thermaltake Volcano 9
If your mobo will support it I really like the Alpha 8045 bit it requires the mobo have the mounting holes in it. If not that then the Thermoltake SLK800 would be a good choice. Both use an 80mm fan which will be quieter than a 60mm fan moving equal amounts of air.
Yep, the Volcano 9 is 80mm and moves air at 75.7 CFM at 4800 rpm with only 48 dB at 4800 rpm which is full speed.
the volcano 9 is a good fan as is the top of the line swiftech you can look around for it... basically a massive copper cooler... you will have to buy and attach a fan to it.. I recommend the fan that comes with the volcano 9... the smartfan2
opted for the slk800 / ys-tech 80mm silent fan.
Volcano 9; awsome fan; does a good job cooling stuff
i use HHC-001 wich is a full coper HS with heat pipes.. i use this on my 2400+ and my temps are 33C. enjoy
what temp readings should i get with the slk800 / ys-tech 80mm silent fan,im currently getting 50c for the cpu and 35 for the mb.
are these about right for my set up?

seems a tad high... I don't get that much oc'd to the max..
yes I have a slower cpu BUT when I oc my fsb is higher... you have a higher clock multiplier and also a smaller die size/process (o.13 micron v/s 0.18 micron)
what kind of thermal paste did you utilize?
also try a smartfan 2 on top of the cooler instead of a silent fan...
