    The way technology is going now its gonna come to the point that we're either gonna start needing heatsinks the size of pentium 1's again.......or there gonna require water cooling or some type of extreme cooling be it peltier LN or some other type of varient. Cause heatsinks are getting just to big that we already need use of all three feet on the socket. I've already heard stories where now the socket under goes so much pressure that the actual socket got pulled out of the mobo. I can't even begin to imagine me being on my computer and hear a clunking sound my screen turn black I smell smoke comming out of my PC I open her up and to see my processor fried and my video card broken casue my heatsink fell on it?

    Still just the thought that your HSF is nearly twice the weight of a CAK. Here I am thinking a CAK is to heavy to go lanning. And your lanning with on twice the size? sheeeeeeeesh!

    Hey guys, i´ve been shopping since my little Duron fried about two days ago.......... :cry: i guess i couldn´t hope for more....
    Well, I found a AXP 1500+ lying in a friend´s room and bought it for about 100 USD, and immediately went to a PC store and buy a CoolerMaster DP5-6I31C, it´s the biggest HSF i could get for the money (about 12 USD) and the sh*t is LOUD!!!!!! it only has a 5400 RPM thin fan on it is already annoying me....
    BUT I´m gettin´ 6600 3DMark score (stock) and i´m happy as hell, but i have a question....
    I´ve read that the AGOIA XPs overclock very well, and my XP just happens to be an AGOIA......
    what can i do about it? (i´m building also a watercooling setup) it stays at 32°C with the CoolerMaster, so how far do ya think i can push it?

    my AXP IS new (my friend sells pc stuff) and remember that i`m in Uruguay, so 100 USD for an AXP 1500+ is actually a very good price...
    And you didn`t said nothing about OCing the darn chip!!

    USD means United States Dollars doesn't it? Then again internation shipping rates could be outragous. So maybe your right. But an AthlonXP 1500 on newegg is half the price of that 100. heh oh well

    Not only the shipping, Demon, but the taxes also... I have to pay 26% IVA (impuesto al valor agregado, added value tax), so a 60 USD (united states dollars) turns into about 110 when I add 35 USD to ship it over the 75 it costs with taxes......... I hate living in the 3rd wolrd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thou it has some advantages (hormone less chickens, lots of cows, etc......) :smokin:

    anyway, i raised the FSB to 140 Mhz and got a AXP 1600+ and OCed the GF3ti200 to 200/450 and got 7350 3dmark points!!!!
    yay!!!!!:flames:
