I use the Zalman CNPS6000-ALCU AMD it's very quiet and keeps my athlon xp 2400 at 40c idle 46c full load
Ohhhh my is the one i have loud!!! Can anyone recommend a quiet Socket A fan?
Stu, thaniks for that, but its a UK thing... anyone have any advice in the states? Ill search those products out around though
I'm sure a lot of these products are available in the states too.
I posted the link as a reference, as its one of the better sites for info on noise levels etc ...
hmm, yup found plenty in the states. Again, thanks!!

This might lead to the heatsink destroying the the board when subjected to the bouncing of a car or truck.
