I just finished putting together my system and I wanted to get some advice on a different heatsink. System specs are

AMD Athlon X2 4800 Dual Core
ASUS A8n-SLI Deluxe
Dual BFG 7800 GTXs

I am using the heatsink that came with the cpu but I wanted to get something to bring the temp down. Its running at around 38-45 Celius. So any help would be most welcome.

Is 45c @ full load? Try running 2 instances of folding@home, and see how high it gets. If it doesn't go higher than 50c, it's no sweat.
