I have a ThermalTake Vocano 11 running a 2500+ at 2.2ghz without bumping the Vcore which about a 3050+ haha but yah If I had the extra money to blow I would go for a SLK900u also but since you said you don't think it will fit you could try the volcano 11
I love the Swiftech MCX 462+. With a Thermaltake Smart Fan II running at about half speed, I'm usually around 38-42 C (depending on the weather). You'll have to take out your mobo, though. The Swiftech is a screw-on heatsink.
it is a job the first time you install it... but after you get the standoffs installed. taking the heatink off and on each time after that is a matter of 4 screws without removing hte motherboard. and if you transport your case at all, the screw-on type heatsinks are a very good idea. a lot more trustworthy than the plastic tabs on the socket.
Well (if I remember corrrectly) there is a difference between them as the volcano11 is a complete cpu cooler (meaning it has a fan already) where as the SLK-800 is just a heatsink and you provide the fan.
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
