Hey guys, I'm looking to buy an AMD 64 3200+ 'Venice' cpu and am looking for any good cpu coolers. Anyone have any good recommendations?

Yeh sorry, I should've been clearer in my op. Basically I'm looking to get the most out of my new cpu with just air cooling so I'm looking for a list of good cpu fans which will allow me to do this.

i would recommend against doing that. In my experience overclocking has never been a benefit and infact causes some programs to crash.

However that is your choice. Tomshardware and anandtech might have some reviews on such things.

I see your point. Well I'm looking to buy the retail version of the 3000+ now since I'm on a budget and I figured the 3000+ will do just as well for me. I'll stick with the stock fan unless I find it unsatisfactory in which case I'll then look for a new fan. Thanks for the advice.

Thermalright SI-120 is currently the champ of all 120mm heatsink.

You sure about that, wusy? I'd have thought that a <A HREF="" target="_new">Thermaltake SonicTower</A> with a 120mm fan could take it.

Wow, thanks for the info. I'll look into both coolers on the net.

THERMALRIGHTs are excellent. If you want the 120, first make sure it will fit your MB and case. I have the THERMALRIGHT XP-90, which is almost as good, smaller, and costs less. Keeps my A64 3500+ (11x212=2.33GHz) a cool 26C at idle and 38C at max load, with very low noise.
