    I have a AMD Athlon 2000+ with the stock HSF, I'm thinking of getting a Vantec Aeroflow so i can overclock, The highest overclock i could get was 2.31 Ghz but i dont want to keep it at that because of the AMD HSF.

    What kind of temps would you think i would get with it with the amd at stock speed.

    Usally i get around 40-45*C at idle now at stock.

    I will probably get Artic Silver 5 to.

    idle temps are irrelevant, when you are maxing the cpu is when you need to be conserned about your temps. However, if you are getting mid-40s at idle then I'm sure you are hitting upper 50s or quite possibly the [dreaded] 60s.

    Personally I have not used the Vantec Aeroflow, but I have heard that it is a decent hsf. I personally use the Thermaltake Silent Boost which is very quiet (21 dB) and my OC 2100+ never gets over 40 C (running Folding@Home 24/7). However I also have excelent case air flow, which is something you need to consider. If you have poor air flow the best HSF wont get you good temps.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
