  4. I would go with anything that has a copper base with a lot of fins. I haven't seen bad cooling out of any of those as long as you have a good fan with good CFM. I run a Globalwin heatsink w/ a Delta fan and it does alright. It's not even a copper base. My friend has a OCZ Goliath with a copper base a YSTech fan and it does better then the review shows with it slightly OC'ed. (Better meaning it runs at 30C at a room temp of 21.1C)

    I have seen a lot of good reviews that have the copper coolers.

  5. Hey,

    From reading many reviews of heat sinks, it seems the best for overclocking are the following:

    Swiftech MCX462
    Alpha 8045T
    Thermalright SK6

    these are pretty expensive... the SK6 is the cheapest. you might be able to use a cheaper model of the Swiftech, like the MCXC370 (copper base) or MCX370 (aluminum base).

    oh ya, and they usually upgrade the fan to a high cfm delta

    good luck.

  6. I use the Swiftech MCX-462 with a Delta that has a rheostat control so I can
    turn the fan speed down (read noise). I have an unlocked XP 1800+ with a
    12.5 x 135 fsb stable at 1680 MHz. mb temp=24ºc cpu=37ºc idle. Cpu load=40ºc.
