    Hi, I'm wondering what heatsink/fan combo would best suit what I'm doing here...Heres the specs

    Intel 2.4c w/ ht (gonna overclock)
    Thermaltake Xaser III (red+silver one)
    Chaintech 9CJS Zenith

    I know to use Arctic Silver 5, but what heatsink!?
    Noise isn't too big of a factor for me because I like to have my speakers loud while playing anyways.

    Mista K6, If you could help, it'd be great. I value your thought out responses. You too Fat Guy :)

    Thanks for any help.

    Actually the HSF that comes with the CPU should be fine up to 3.2GHz or so.

    For some nice cooling, at not too much of a noise, get the Vantec Aeroflow, it tends to run around $20-$25US, and is probably the best bang for your buck P4 cooler.

    A total silent solution would be a Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler, though its speed is adjustable and it can be turned up, and when done it does create some noise, but not much,

    The ultimate would be a Thermalright SP-94 and a 92mm Vantec Tornado fan, though there would be a ton of noise

    I like my Thermaltake Volcano 7+, with adjustable speeds and all copper for 20 US its a great buy. It is pretty loud though at high speeds if you're doing major Overclocking. If you're looking Silent, Zalman is a good option, and Thermaltake Silent Boost has gotten alot of good reviews from people. Good call on the AS5 though.

    Best would be the Thermalright SP-94. You can get a Panaflo 92mm fan and push good CFM (68) without being loud as well.

    One of these can handle the heat of your 2.4 no matter how high you take it.
