Its time once again (I love it) when I will upgrade my pc. Well, I'm actually building a new one so I need some help from people that might actually have this setup. I'm getting an AMD XP2100+ and wonder which heatsink/fan is best (and not noisy), thanx for the comments

I would only go with H2O with an AMD due to their heat characteristics. Something like a product from Swiftech. If you insist on air-cooled the Volcano 7 is choice.

Snook: yea man, my buddy bought that same case (not aluminum) for like 160 last year. Gotta love the price drops =]
but then again, it'll probably be costing under $50 in a few months hehehe

I don't know if it's loud. I run 4 Delta's in my case and they are loud (got the case in the other room). Anything, compared to a Delta 80X38 80cfm is quiet to my standards.:D

coooooool I just got my new motherboard last week and installed it. Happy to say that I upgraded back to windoze xp. I used to have a VIA chipset mobo and because of my gf4 and nvidia detonator drivers I was getting the infinite loop error. I gave up trying to fix it after trying EVERYTHING. Now I need a new CPU, fans, heatsink, DDR memory and I'll be set...gotta love credit cards

I use ADDA 80mm 50CFM fans, move a lot of air without being to loud.

I have two 80mm intakes in the front .. two 80mm intakes on the side (with filters) .. one 80mm exhaust on top of the case plus the two in the P/S. Also an ADDA 90mm 60CFM fan on the heatsink.

ALpha PAL8045T

The ALpha PAL8045T is better than the Volcano 7 IMO. I've got it running on my Athlon XP 1700+ with a Panaflo 80mm fan and my temps are 34c Idle easily. I have had 0 probs with the heatsink other than it not fitting perfectly on my Asus A7V266E. I'm gonna have to do some trimming because right now it's resting against a capacitor and I really don't like it. Other than that I have no complaints and would recommend it to anyone looking for an excellent cooling solution.

Get the bare heatsink for 39 bucks here

ive used noise control sivlerado hsf...good and quiet
using an akasa silver mountain2 with an 80mm fan...works even better....

i go for quieter hsf combos so i dont mind my temps bein a lil on the high side.....also its very hot here so not much else cept go water coolin or vapochill:)

i usually run around 50~55c full load
