Hey all, hopping for some advice here. Just put together a friends new board
with his old CPU and the temps kinda shocked me. Idel the cpu temps were
hitting 51C and under prime95 hitting 58-59C.

I tried reseating the heatsink, cleaning off and reapplying artic silver,
nothing changed. Temps tended to be the same with the case open or closed. I'm
thinking it may be time to replace the OEM AMD heatsink that came with the CPU.

Seeing as how there are more Socket A coolers out there than you can swing a
dead cat at, I thought I'd see what ya'll would recomend. Sound isnt a huge
issue but I'd like to stay away from the 7000 RPM screamers if at all possible.

He currently running an Athlon 2400+ running at stock speeds but he's been
thinking about trying to OC it. The board is an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe.

Thanks everyone
Arie

TR2-M1 (or M3), about $8, 21dba (very quiet). Not far from $60 coolers
performance.

Zalman 7000A cu :) 

Same cpu running at 34c :) 

And QUIET AS :) , 1500 rpm one prob is big make sure you can fit it on
your mobo, Zalman have a Compatiblity chart.

No other Cpu cooler comes close.

Cool, thanks for the suggestion, was thinking bout picking one of those Zalmans
up for my 64bit system too. Think I'll let him pick it up for his and test it
out. If its not to big a pain in the ass I'll look in to it myself ;)

You could also try something crazy like this,
http://mywebpages.comcast.net/dstrausser33/
This setup is still the same, but I don't have the MSI MB any more.
I have a Asus A7N8X board.
HS I think was by Antec, The Fan just happened to fit.
Needed to use a really small screw driver for it.
38/100 are my temps as of now, that's Idle temps.
45/113 running Sisoftware Sandra CPU Test over & over again, how
many times I ran it I don't know.
All I know is I ran it over & over again till it didn't look like it was
going
up any more.
These are nice temps if you consider.
CPU-Z is reporting vcore @ 1.872 - 1.904V
CPU running 2,175 (2.18GHz or 2.175 GHz)
2200+ @ 2800+ but running more like a 3000+
a little faster really, but not as fast as a 3200+
It's nice, & I would be willing to put another AMD together
in the future sometime.
No more P4 or P5 or what ever Intel comes up with next.
They are nice for encoding jobs, but AMD is better for gaming.
+ Takes more hardware faster then a Intel system.
You ever see those gaming pads that EB has, they look just like a PS2 Game
Pad.
Only one problem with them, they don't work @ all on Intel systems.
@ least not without a driver the company never put out.

Good luck to you, I hope things work out.
Denny. :-)
