    I just ordered the Spark7 and some AS3 for $65 AUD total (from umart.com.au). I think it's a good balance of price, performance and quietness.

    I won't be doing any extreme overclocking. I just want to get to around 160FSB (3.2Ghz) or a bit higher on a moderate voltage like 1.65v and still have my CPU stay at or under 50C under full long-term load. The Spark7 sounds like it can deliver that :)

    Already have an old Card Cooler XT (2 x 120mm) fan blowing onto the Radeon and my mobo/cpu for general circulation and cooling, so the mobo/case temp is always around 28C (23C ambient).

    Spark 7/Volcanoe7+'s are going for $28-32usd around here - although I haven't really been bargain shopping for them

    I've been watching SLK900U's going for $40-44usd on eBay & thinking I might like to try one - that's without the fan - but I already have a few HO 80 & 92mm fans lying around to use.

    I wonder why the thermalrights are so much more expensive in Aus? - I've seen the SK6's for $11usd, but they're still $41 in your link

    Just one of the reasons that ppl in other parts of the world, other than your end, complain about the prices of some hardware and why I'll at least will stick with the 7+ for the time being.

    Ok it's early days yet, but I've set up the Spark 7 using some AS3. It went a lot easier than I thought, as this is my first time installing a non-stock HS&F, and yes, even my first time using AS3 (always been too lazy before).

    Running at stock, I am extremely pleased with the noise and performance of the Spark 7. For starters, I'm using the supplied heat sensor and letting it decide the best speed. It usually runs around 2700-3000rpm, and I can't hear it over my other fans (Card Cooler XT 2x120mm @35dba). Just a soft wooshing noise.

    When I put the CPU under load using Prime95, it eventually ramps up to 4600rpm and keeps the CPU under 49C (mobo 31C), which is great considering I've only left the case open a bit and have no intake and one small exhaust fan. Even at 4600rpm the noise is nothing to worry about.

    Two thumbs up! (Click on "My Machine" link below to see pic)

    I'll update my results as I overclock the CPU, but I am very pleased with this HS&F

    :blowkiss:
