I was all set to rush out & get an AMD XP 1800+, & now after doing some research have some reservations. Here is the setup I am contemplating & curious to know if this will provide adequate cooling for the proc. Thanks in advance, Rick
AMD XP 1800+ with Dragon ORB-3 HSF
Enlight 7237 case with 340W power supply.
I would personally not place too much faith in Dragon Orbs. They have decent cooling performance, but I've heard of fans failing a little too often for my taste.
I would say either go with one of the following choices:
ThermalRight SK6 for decent cooling in constricted spaces
Alpha 8045 for excellent cooling at a good price and a superior mounting system
SwifTech MCX-462 for absolute best air cooling (and superior mounting system)
