I am building a new system. My next purchase will be the processor and HS&F. I plan on over clocking a Duron 800, what is the best HS&F to get without spending too much? Also, any suggestions on other components? I listed what I have in mind below.

I have so far:
THEON CyClone 5000 ATX Mid
ABIT KT7A Raid MoBo
Soundblaster Live! MP3+5.1
D-Link network card
40X CD-ROM from old computer
floppy from old computer

Am planning on getting very soon:
Duron 800 w/HS&F (super orb, alpha, globalwin???)
256 Crucial Ram
two IBM deskstar 40 gig drives
AOpen 10x CDRW
GeForce II Ultra 64MB

I have the ThermalTake Mini-Super Orb on my KT7A. It is made to fit and hasn't caused me any problems. Costed about $20.
www.2cooltek.com has a good selection.
Good Luck! Keep Cool!

My 2 picks are the Millenium Copper Glaciator (Soon to be available---http://home.att.net/~millennium_thermal/Index.html) ~$35, and the currently available, but alas backordered, OCZ Gladiator from http://ocz.safeshopper.com/ Both performed awesome for the money, especially the pre-production Millenium Copper Glaciator. I am going with a Glaciator myself when I can buy one. Peace. :)

Global Win HSFs are hard to beat at any price unless you spend the bucks for a Swiftech 462. Beware of OCZ.
