    The Alpha 8045 is an excelent cooler. You can use just about any 80mm fan from slow to fast. If I were chosing I would get a high output fan and use a rehostat on it to control the speed to my liking. Just make shrue the heatsink will fit around your socket since its pretty big. You will also have to have the 4 holes around the socket which most AMD boards have already.

    I've never had a chance to use the Switech, but I love the Alpha 8045 I have now. I use the Delta 80 CFM with a rheostat speed controller

    is that fan controller external
    All a rheostat is, is a variable resistor that is spliced in to one of the fans power wires. You can put it anywhere, I have mine mounted on the front of my case.

    Alpha pal8045

    I'd recommend gettig the one w/o a fan, then find a fan with some serious power.

    i cant find the OCers HSF chart but this is one of the top 5
    HSFS cooling wise. its cheaper than the others, its quieter
    than the others.

    that newegg one is price to hight (yeah i know newegg priced to high how could that be)

    here is a better one..

    http://www.svcompucycle.com/alpalheaton.html

    get the y-tech for 6 bucks more 48 cfm great fan.. also i orderd a grill for mine like all my other fans.. they look cool and keep ur fingers from geting hurt.. which is not to big of a deal with the 80 mm fans sence they dont need to spin as fast as the 60 mm fans do for the same cfm but still worth the buck.. just make sure u ask for screws for ur grill mine didnt come with it i had to use my own..
