    Hi, I don't have too much money to spend, so I need to know is the TR2 M2 is a good choice for an Athlon XP 2000+, or definitively I should wait until I have more money to buy a Volcano7+ or the Volcano11 (They cost twice, double, two times the M2).

    :cheers:

    never heard of it, but I found this review of it with a quick google search

    (i didn't know that Thermaltake had any subsidiaries...much less one called TR2)

    here are the detailed specs from the TR2 site: http://www.tr2tt.com/English/Products/coolers/m2.htm

    from a quick galance, it looks like a decent performer, if you get it, ley us know how you like it :)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I'm beginin' wonderin' whether Thermaltake actually makes anything themselves as to me they seem more and more everyday as a reseller of other ppl's renamed products but I've never been happy with bi-metal HSF's so I'd suggest savin' those few extra $'s for the 7+.

    After reading, the M2 isn't so bad, but Wiggo is right is better to save more money for a better cooler.

    I have to start thinking not only in the present but in the future, I guess that the Volcano 7+ has more "potential" use than the M2. It is and investment, for now and later.

    Thanks for yor help :thumb:

    have a look a the Spire Falcon Rock 2, its a good performing aluminium HSF that comes stock with a quiet fan, but can be replaces with a different faster/louder fan if the sctock fan doesn't do it for you.

    have a look at a review here:

    I don't know why people still use aluminum? It is 30% less efficient than solid copper.

    I'm with Andy. This cooler is very nice. After he showed me the same link, I decided to try one out. It seems to perform damn well with the quiet fan that comes with it.

    if the review is to be believed (i have no reason not to beleive it), that is quite a nice cooler...and it's not even all coppper....I wonder if I can find a retailer with some of those here in the US :?:
