How good is a Coolermaster HHC-L61 Heatpipe cooler?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.overclocking (More info?)

Had one on my 2500+ Barton for a long time but i've no idea how this
would compare to a modern heatsink. It is an all copper heatpipe
design but the packaging gives no clue to the maximum speed usage - it
just says "Athlon XP up to 2200 and higher" because this was bought
back when a 2200 was top of the market (used on a 1600+ at the time
until it died on me)

Nver bothered to overclock this CPU because I haven't needed to & my
GFX card was always the bottleneck but with the arival of Doom3 & a
fancy new card to play it on I'm back overclocking for the first time
since Celeron 366@550 <G>

The big question is this HSF good enough for a 3200+ & therefore a
2500@3200?

My system runs at around 56c CPU temp, 38c mobo temp and GFX card temp
of 55c

    My don't no either. Sata is getting cheep, "cheep cheep, cheep?" Huh?
    Quick search newegg for sata,,, "K, a search for just Sata is not enough,
    too many matchs"

    dee, dah, search for,,, 120?
    Sata hard drive = search
    Found = http://www.newegg.com/app/SearchProductResult.asp?DEPA=0
    Hm, I just thought how I can do a copy paste in solid html into
    a post.....
    So now, this is back to black text.

    Bought them ages ago and got no real reason to upgrade, after all they
    are not *that* slow - 74 meg/sec burst transfer rate and 48 meg/sec
    sustained transfer rate according to HDTach, and only marginally
    slower from most of the SATA benchmarks I've seen.

    I certainly don't need extra space either, the 80gig has 26gig free on
    it & I have a 60gig WD sitting on my shelf not being used!

    Was just curious...looks like you have a kick butt system minus the
    harddrives. If it works for you thats all that matters.
