What HSF do u use on your 1.4 ?

What HSF do you use on your 1.4Ghz?
Just ordered one and I'm sure the stock HSF will not be enough to keep it comfortably cool.
I do plan to o/c.

More about what
  1. well i dont have a 1.4. got a 1.2 @ 1.35.
    currently using a winfop32-1, but auzzie summer is approaching and i need something better.
    good looking HSF's at the moment include the thermaltake sk 6 (i think its called), the swiftech mcx370 or the one im planning on getting, the swiftech mc 462A. (best aircooler available)

    Religious wars are 2 groups of people fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.
  2. If you planned to overclock why did you order a retail 1.4 why didnt you save 20 bucks. Get a swiftech the newer ones, I use a thermoengine delta(used) and it kept my cpu at 44C or less at 1.33@1.5

  3. Here are some links for heatsink comparison.
    the SK6 mentioned by someone above is a good one for the money.

    I bought an OCZ Gladiator 6 months ago. Now they go for $20. One of the things to consider is the mounting setup. If I were buying another I would go with the newer type that mounts with 4 bolts and relies on springs for the correct pressure. The new Alpha 8045, and Swiftec(who had it first) all use it although it is more expensive (anybody out there have one???). Delta fans are the best performers overall but are the loudest. If OC'ing you will want to go with them.

    Sorry about the triple post (I think that is a new one) but I got it straight now.
  6. and what about guys that don't want to overclock, but just want to make sure they are staying nice and cool? i got a couple heatsinks in mind when i go to the xp 1800. but i'm not sure what would be overkill and what wouldn't. their:
    swiftech mcx370
    globalwin wbk38,wbk68,fop32-1
