Everything is running awesome and CPU temp sticks around 40C.
The only problem that I have with it is that I'm still using the stock heatsink and fan from my old AMD AThlong 64 X2 4200+ that I replaced. I forgot to get new thermal grease, so I just took the heatsink and fan off the old processor and put it on the new one (with whatever grease was left on there (been used for 3+ years)). Also, the CPU fan is old and louder than the 6 case fans.....
As you can guess, I'm in the market for a new HSF. I'm been looking alot at the TT CL-P0464, but they seem to be out of stock in most places.
My main question: What HSF would you suggest that *doesn't* require me to completely take out my mobo to install it? (I'd REALLY like to avoid having to do this).
Alternatively, I'm also looking at just getting a new CPU fan (70MM) that is low dB (<21).
PS. Primary usage includes office stuff, internet, some gaming. I would like to play around with overclocking, but I want to make sure I get proper cooling for the CPU before I start (never OC'd before).
