  1. Yes, the hyper 212+ is a nice heatsink. Frostytech.com says one of the best available for AM2/AM3 is the Thermaltake Frio. I like the looks too, so I would consider that as a high end option.

  2. May want to look at the top 5 quiet heatsinks:

  3. The 212+'s fan can become audible (wouldn't really call it loud) at full RPM. However, unless you OC and are constantly running CFD code, I doubt it would ever go to full RPM (I have 212+'s on my 1055T and i5).
