    Alrighty,
    Whats the best Fan to get for cooling an AMD XP2000+. I've heard the Volcano 7 is the best but whats your opinion. I just picked up a HCC-001 for free from Dabs due to blunder on there part but im not happy with it.

    Apparently the HHC-001 is now discontinued... Anyone know why, or whats replacing it?

    Volcano 7+ is the way to go if you want to overclock.

    I had a Volcano 7...didn't do jack...temps were at 55-65 degrees. I have a stock AMD cooler now (I got the boxed retail version) and my comp runs in the range of 48-54 degrees. Not bad for a stock cooler...

    if a stock hsf is doing better than a volcano 7, then i'd have to think that you did something wrong during the volcano's installation. did you clean both surfaces thorougly? didn't touch them or the thermal compound with your fingers, did you? oil insulates. did you use good thermal compound?

    no idea why the hhc-001 is discontinued, raja... coolermaster's site still has it as one of their products and no word of getting rid of it. and i know it can still be bought at a major electroic's store here.

    Well, looks like a Volcano 7+ it is then...

    I orderd a HHC-001 from Dabs and they sent me an HCC-001 by mistake, when i asked to return it they said that the HHC-001 was now dicontinued (it is no-longer available on their site). They then refunded me my cash and didnt ask for the HCC-001 back, so im using that at the moment but the temps a bit on the hot side so im gonna ditch it.

    Thanks Guys...
