If you have the Amd XP 2000+ cpu with the Soyo Dragon + MotherBoard i would like to know which CPU cooler You selected.
I may want to overclock, thats why i really don't want to get the Retail Package
Many people request the Alpha 8045, but on all the reviews it's being used with Much lower CPU's i need something good for the
you want the truth? u want the truth? u can't handle the truth.
the best hsf available for your heavy weight xp2000+ can only be ..the one... the only "Swiftech MCX462".
but keep in mind it cost a fortune ( for a heatsink that is )
If you want to cool your XP without having to go to water, the MCX462 is the best there is. I've got one and I've learned that I could go without the Delta 38, so I threw an Enermax adjustable fan on it and it's much quieter but still hovers around 40C.
well, now im GOING INSANE!!! im not buying anything till JUNE. #1 will the Soyo Dragon + be long gone by then, will something be released to blow it away. I aint gonna buy Xp2000+ when in like 4 or 5 months, XP2300 will be out. id rather wait alittle more.
I solve this dilema by never paying too much on a system. Then 6 months later, I upgrade a couple of components and then 6 months after that, I make a few more upgrades, etc. Personally, I would never go out and buy the best of the best and realize it's considered a "value" component a few months later. So for example, say I have a budget of $3000 on a PC. Rather than spending the entire $3000, I buy a $1500 baseline PC with cheap graphics and sound. Six months later, I'd get the second best graphics and sound I can find. Six months after that, I upgrade the CPU to the second best of that time, etc, etc. You will eventually find out that you've spent about the same total amount of money for a PC that will last you a lot longer.
