Thanks More about : athlon heat sink fan bum_jcrules October 22, 2001 5:32:10 PM For an Air-Cooled system it would have to be the (1) Alpha PAL 8045 with a Delta Fan. http://www.micforg.co.jp/c_pal8045e.html Test results from manufacturer: http://www.micforg.co.jp/c_pal8045e_other_fan.html Outside test results: http://www.anandtech.com/showdoc.html?i=1532&p=2 Second would be the Kanie Hedgehog W.(Wing) http://www.est.hi-ho.ne.jp/kanie/eproductsbodysocket.ht... See independent test results above. Third wouyld be the Thermalright SK6. This one is the cheapest yet with the best results. http://www.thermalright.com/sk6.htm Also: see independent results above.
