    If you really want a quiet heatsink, get a vapochill. These suckers can cool your cpu down to -20 C! Very quiet too. And cheap......if your a millionaire. $500!

    Go Prometia not Vapochill. Vapochills are more prone to causing damage to your cpu core during installation

    Thanks guys, sounds like I'm getting the Spark 7 :)

    I shoulda been more specific too...I didn't mean money is no object...Vapochill is a little too pricey just for an extra few hundred Mhz. Plus I have heard stories from owners about 3.06 P4's dying because the Vapo failed, so I just want a good solid HSF to push the 2.66 to somewhere like 3.3Ghz at a comfortable temp. The rest of my components should easily take that sort of FSB :)

    PersianImmortal,

    How do you like your MOBO? I just bought one of those and am waiting for my processor to arrive so I can put my much anticipated machine together. I just wondered what you thought of it. Is it good for overclocking? Did you have any installation prob. Anything you didn't like?

    Motherboard is great...has virtually every feature you'd want. If you're using a SATA drive then you need to create a SATA driver disk before you can install Windows on it. Otherwise installation and use is easy. BIOS options very clear and the only problem with the E7205 chipset is that if you run a Radeon 9700 Pro you'll need to disable Fast Writes in SmartGart or you may experience lockups/problems.

    It's probably one of the more overclocker-friendly boards around, with 1Mhz step FSBs from 100 to 200, and AGP/PCI Lock, votalge adjustment for AGP, Core and DIMM, plus the usual fare of options.

    Overall I'm very happy with the system, I just want to make sure I overclock with plenty of cooling and get something 100% Prime95-stable :)

    Yeah, I will be using SATA HDDs. Hopefully they aren't that hard to configure. Glad to hear positive feedback on the board. That is a plus.

    Well, since you're a millionaire, might as well go for the gold and get a Promiteia at $600........and like Wiggo.......from biulding lots of systems, i'd definitely go with the TT 7+ it works inspite of the Hype.......:thumb:

    have you had a look at the SLK900U? - it works with both AMD & P4's....it is a little pricey (~$45us) - but with the option to use 80 or 90mm fans, you should be able to put together a pretty quiet & efficient cooling solution.
