    i cannot decide which hsf to get. it will be on an epox 8kha+ board with an XP1800-will be overclocked. the alpha site says that the pal is compatible with the board, but it will touch other components, maybe damaging them...:o
    does anyone have any suggestions?

    I can vouch for the Volcano 7+ with running a 1800+ @ 2000+ on a 8KHA+ board very well. :smokin:

    yea the volcano 7+ would proabably be the best choice....or you could get an thermalrite AX7 which performs about the same but looks much better(in my opinion)....or if u wanna be really crazy like me....u can buy the mofo of a HSF Swiftech mcx462:afro: ...and whack a 69cfm delta on top.....even MY ears can't cope woth the 80cfm
    :cheers:

    btw it also depends if u plan to voltage mod....all 3 will perform much the same at 1.85 volts but crank up the the voltage to 2.2v and will see that the swiftech handles it better due to it's sheer heat-absorbing properties...gotta love that sexy beast:afro:

    of course this was just one review i read and may not be tru but still....think of that sexy sandwich-thick shint copper base and those beautifully crafted hellicoid gleaming aluminum pins...*drool:cheers:

    IMO, heatsinks designed for performance MUST be solid copper. I would suggest something similar to a OCZ Gladiator, if you can find one on the market. If you don't know what it looks like do an image search on google for OCZ Gladiator

    I've got an OCZ Gladiator myself (It goes under another name, but i can't remember...). However, if the Volcano 7+ is an option, go for this instead. It's much better than the OCZ....

    Beffy a Powercooler PCH137 is what the OCZ Gladiator is for the simple fact that OCZ bought these and repackaged them with their name which is all any OCZ product is, someone else's product under an OCZ name. ;)

    If anyone is thinking of buying a heatsink/fan for a P4, don't buy a ZALMAN CNPS 5500Cu.

    The main problem is the lack of it's cooling capacity, it just doesn't work because the main heatsink section of the 5500Cu is oval where the heatspreader on the Pentium 4 processor is square and is slightly larger than the base of the CNPS5500-Cu heatsink, so that means that parts of the heatspreader was left uncovered and that can result in hot/cold spots on the processor and thus reducing it's effectiveness. Not a good design at all.

    Hope this helps someone not get caught like I did.
