I'm sure everyone is sick and tired of hearing these kind of "what should I buy" posts, but I've been looking for a couple hours and feel like taking a break (and eating, lol)

I don't plan to be doing any real overclocking with this computer for a while, and am mainly focused on noise, or lack of it.

I'd like to find a fan/heatsink combo that can keep it in the 30s/40s and still hover around the 30db area, any suggestions?

Did say 2700+, I meant the 2600+ (changed just now)
It's all good ^_^<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by namek0 on 06/04/03 10:51 AM.</EM></FONT></P>

I've always had a grudge with frozencpu.com (same for googlegear, but that's a different story) but I finally caved and bought something from them: Spire FalconRock I

<A HREF="http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/cpu-spi-01.html" target="_new">http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/cpu-spi-01.html</A>

I've got a friend who has one of these, and it's one quiet mother. Funky thing is, it puts out quite a bit of air for being so quiet. Punks charging me 7.95 to ship though, lol. I checked around and found some reviews and system setups using the fan, and they look great. I saw 2 seperate reviews that compared it to 3 louder fans (one was a volcano) and it outperformed all of them. Not sure how accurate that was, but hey, it looks like a winner

It's all good ^_^

Little update here. I went the 1700+ route because I'm poor, lol. I've got the 1700+ o/c at 2600+ levels, and the Falconrock I runs at 38C idle, and 45C under full load.

This is an awesome heatsink/fan. It's quiet, a breeze to install, and performs like a beast

It's all good ^_^
