Best Athlon Cooler for £40 or Less in the UK?

My Rig is

Athlon 2500XP+
1024Mb DDR400 Ram.
Abit NF7 Mobo.
Radeon 9800 Pro.
Soundblaster Live 5.1

My Temps always rise up to 60ish very quickly when gaming.
I have a Thermaltake Volcano9 using Artic Silver.
Also have

Case Fan
Graphics Card Fan
Small Fan on Mobo.

And still temps are high.
So can anyone recommend a Kick Ass Fan and Heatsink to try an get these temps down?

Thanx

  1. Vantec Aeroflows are very cheap and very effective

    Thermalright SLK800U with 80mm Smart Case Fan 2 is great.

    What revision's your mobo 1 or 2?

  2. Sorry what do you mean what Revision?

    Thanx
  3. Your motherboard I think has 2 revisions, 1 doesn't have mounting holes, you can't use the SLK***U products, 2 has mounting house and you can use all the thru-mobo heatsinks.

  4. Just got one of these <A HREF="http://tw.giga-byte.com/Peripherals/Products/Products_GH-PCU31-VH(3D Cooler-Ultra GT).htm" target="_new">http://tw.giga-byte.com/Peripherals/Products/Products_GH-PCU31-VH(3D Cooler-Ultra GT).htm</A>for my second system, keeps everything nice a cool even at the lowest fan speed (which is damn quiet).

    Your cooler is good though, your CPU shouldnt be getting as hot as 60c. Has it been quite hot where you are in england?
