    all that volcano crap is all looks.buy a heavy cheap copper heatsink works way better.i know cause i had a volcano 7.
    There's a world of difference between the hybrid Volcano 7 and the large lump of copper Volcano 7+ so ya can't comment till ya tried one, http://www.dansdata.com/coolercomp.htm, plus I've used nearly 30 of them now with absolutely no complaints from me, my wallet or the ppl that have their PC's built by me with them fitted. :devil win<center>:cheers:</center>

    My next cooler will be a volcano 9. But in the mean time, what you need to look as it the CFM for the CPU fan. If it is 30-40 then an AMD will run hot. You need about 80CFM from delta fan or volcano 9 fan.

    This is why most people have problems!

    djrpowell don't let me hear me say that I didn't tell you that the Volcano 7+ performs better and quieter (re: easier to live with) than the Volcano 9 later. :devil:

    A temporary loss of memory is quite ok so long as ya don't do it at the point of purchase. :devil win

    I don't think anyone mentioned if the temperatures that they're getting are internal, or external CPU temps, I think that 60c is an okay temperature if it's internal (A temperature actually made within the CPU itself) but if it was external, I'd be thinking of putting a better HSF on, including case fans.

    I have an aluminium HSF with a copper middle (sounds stupid doesn't it?) which has very thin fins, a 120mm fan on the front of the case blowing in (taken from my Q-Tec power supply that went wrong, and converted the end) a normal sized CPU fan at the back, blowing out, 2 PCI fans, one over the graphics card, and one near the CPU, including 2 fans blowing out on my PSU.

    It also sounds like a hoover, and gets internal CPU temps of about 59c to 60c (FSB @ 139MHz) and all works perfectly fine.

    Does my fan-cooling system seem a bit needless to anyone? :p

    well i have have a delta case fan 80mm 76CFM also a front case fan. i have drilled holes in the spare drive bays to aid the flow of air. I have power supply fans, and one on my graphics card GeForce4 Mx460 overclocked GS!

    My internal cpu temp is normally 46-50 when the; 22 room temp 28 case temp.

    But it also sounds like a hoover!

    I always have the central heating in my room quite high, so mine probably needs as many fans as possible, but I do get the feeling that they're not doing anything to the temperture at all, esspecially if the CPU is keeping at a constant temperture of 60c, I'm beggining to think that the copper on the bottom of the HSF actually makes it hotter (because it's just a circle of copper with aluminium fins).

    Does anyone think that reverting to my slightly shorter full aluminium HSF would do any better? It's the one that came with my non-OEM AMD 2000+ XP processor.

    I look at it this way, if ya can keep the CPU within 20C of room temp under full load then ya doin' well. My case temps are 2-4C over room temp and my overclocked 1800+ is 16C above room while my o/c'd 2200+ is 18C above room. This is why I ask for room temps as well as ya temps may look good but if ya room is 18C and ya cpu 44C that will tell me that there is room for improvement. ;)
