I will be getting an Athlon XP 2400+ (since my 2200+ is broke-ass).
I have an ASUS A7V8X mobo, and will probably want to be Overclocking it. What is a good reliable heatsink / fan combination to keep things cool, and at a fairly low volume. The Thermaltake Volcano 9 that I had spun at 4800 rpm and was way too loud. Thanks
The cheat is, GROUNDED!
volcano 7+ has a 3 setting speed controller
on low it's inaudible
on medium it's loud but not deafeningly so
on high it's loud and the pitch of the fan is nerve racking
(the difference in temps on load between medium and high is 1*C for me, so medium is the highest i ever go)
if you want a quiet fan all the time go for the mcx 462 with a quiet 80mm like svol said
it won't be the best cooling under stress though
