New Heatsink


http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...625&CatId=2545 Any ideas about this heat sink? Will it be alright. My cooling now is just stock air and I can't get over 2.45 stable with it. My CPU will overclock to 2.65 no problem but at 55* no load. If this cooling setup wouldnt be suitable for my application any suggestions on what would be? Thanks

It looks like a pretty reasonable heatsink. I would try and find a few reviews of it before you make a decision if i were you.

If you want a really good air heatsink then go with this one:

It will handle your 4200 no problem. The only thing about it though is that it is extremely bulky. I use an Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro on my 4200. Cools it just fine and is much easier to work with than the Geminii.

a standard thermalright Ultra 120 will be cheaper, smaller, and performe way better than that. prob is on AM2 socket the direction of the heatsink isnt prefrebal, in this case id recommend a Scythe ninja.

If you are looking for a non tower design Thermalright has 2 models you might also consider.

http://www.svc.com/si-128se.html

http://www.svc.com/xp-120-p4-21.html

I just purchased the SI 128 SE from Jab-Tech but will not be able to get my hands on it until Monday.

I prefer this design compared to the towers...The towers are supposed to cool better...But I like designs like the Coolermaster or Thermaltakes because they blow down and should help cool other components on the motherboard.

Just my 2 cents.
