    Get the Volcano 11+ Xaser edition (The one I have in my sig.) If you don't want to pay 30 bucks for it, then grab the 7+ as the HS is pure copper, and it's a nice HSF.

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Even though only *cough* rated at "suitable for up to XP2600+" *cough* I can tell ya's that the Volcano 7+ can handle much higher (handles 2.433GHz easily to my personal experience) but the Volcano 11 (though basically a 7+ heatsink w/ SMART FAN II upgrade) in the few reviews that I've seen that compared the 2 doesn't do any better than the 7+ except in the noise department and the noise is something that should be heard from a distance as it could cause permanant hearin' damage. Personally I reckon you'd be better off with an XP2600+ w/ 7+.

    I got both v7+ and 11. Love them the same!
    Actually since I put a different fan on the 11, its superquiet and doesnt require the speed changer thing. and its running full speed! :thumb:

    as for the hsf, I'd go with the v11+
    at least it will accomadate any 80mm fan you may want to put on it in the future if you don't like the one that comes with it

    the v7+ uses a 70mm fan and may require modification if you ever want to change the fan

    the v11 does have some extra features too, such as a fan conrol that fits in a pci cover slot

    volcano 11+ it is. 30 bucks is good price. ill probably end up paying about 36 for it but whatever. heres my next question. My mo has anti burn regulator, and fan off control. is this gonna screw with the volcano or will it be ok? And how much better is the xp3000+ to the other bartons? is it worth the $ difference?

    i've got a Spire Falcon Rock 2, it absolutely rocks!
    it comes with a super quiet fan and cools very respectibly, but, put on a fan of the likes of a delta and you have performance of heavy expensive copper heatsinks (as tested by dan from dan's data).

    seeing as its only rated to 2800+ with its stock fan, you'll have to get another fan to go on top, but thats fine cos its only 33 AUS$ so it should only be about 15 US$. add the fan to it and you have yourself an excelent preforming heatsink that can handle your 3000+

    i just modded my volcano 7+ with a 70to92mm fan adapter and slapped on a 92mm tornado fan, my temps dropped by 6C, i found the guide at www.xoxideforums.com, it was also my first dremel job so i'm very proud of this mod
