Bought a Week 32 Barton at the show this weekend and am about to order the following from newegg..

NF7-S v2.0
2x 256 pc3500 Muskin *from the reccomended ram page*

only question.. SLK-900-A or SLK-947-U?

I'll be running a Panaflo 92mm h1a fan on it

Its only a matter of 5 bucks.. and i kinda like the idea of the heatsink bolting on instead of clipping as I do lan alot..

If you go to LAN Partys a lot, the clips will really help as these heatsinks are very heavy. The moutning holes will be a much better option as I've seen the clips on Processor Sockets break before from heavy heatsinks and heatsinks with clumsy mounting springs. The sockets clips can break very easily as they are only plastic, particulrary during transit of a system.

Well this is a mute argument.. according to the thermalright page.. the nf7-s v2.0 can't fit the SLK-947-U only v1.2 can..

argh!

any other reccomendations for bolt on hsf that newegg carries?

This is the downside to AMD cpus. They only have a 300g limitation. Any heatsink thats heavier, the manufacturers will recommend removing the heatsink before moving the computer. Makes lan party a pain in the ***.
