are there any good cheap "under 20 dollars" heatsink fan for overclocking a xp2400 ? If not, forget the 20 dollars part, what would be a good sin, fan for overclocking a xp2400 no mater the price "under 50 dollars"
yes! there are no fanless heatsinks on the market for medium to high-end cpus. they simply create too much heat.
friend and i recently bought the Swiftech MCX462+ for his 2400+... with a nice quiet 80mm fan, his temps are about 15°C lower than with the coolermaster hhc-001. the extra air from the 80mm fan sure helps, too... opposed to the 60mm one. but the mcx462+ was not cheap!
you can also undervolt your 2400. i forget what the stock voltage was on it... 1.65v? 1.75v? whatever it was, i got it to run .1v under and it was still totally stable and is a free and easy way to lower your temps. so maybe do that and get a volcano 9..? that should be plenty.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
