I've read a lot of the posts here concerning CPU cooling, and the most mentioned HSF seems to be the Thermaltake Volcano 7. Before I make a purchase, I'd like to get everyones input on the best all-around HSF. I don't plan to overclock, but I also only slightly care about noise. I just want to make sure my CPU is taken care of - currently using the default AMD HSF on an ASUS a7v333, and my CPU temp is usually 60-65 (50-55 using conventional thermostats).
I have an A7V333 and an XP2100+. I live in a hot climate, so I wanted the best heatsink, regardless of noise. My choice was the Alpha PAL 8045 with a Vantec Tornado 84 cfm fan. It's cool but noisy. With BIOS 1011 my cpu temperatures are in the 40-50C range.
It's not important to know all the answers, as long as you know how to contact someone who does.
