    Here's something to do 1st before using the HSF with a retail pack and that's to remove the TIM attached to as ya'll see in this pic of one that came close to cooking the chip. :eek:

    The 7+ is a high-end cooler....u wouldn't want it unless u were doing some quite serious overclocking.....if ur not gonna overclock pretti much anything like a volcano Cu6 or even a dirt cheap FOP 32 is more than adequate:afro:

    I wouldn't go as low as the FOP32..... although it was an awesome cooler in its day (and still cools my 1GHz Pentium III) the Volcano 6Cu is a little more efficienct for an Athlon XP ;)

    It would have to be a well ventilated case and the FOP lapped as well and then it would only be just able to keep the core within spec but I've seen a couple that will still fall over when the pressure got too much and that clip on them would have to be one of the worlds worst.. :smokin:
