hey Venom, I just wanted to see how the SLK-800A is working out and what to look out for while installing it.

I also have an K7N2 and am having trouble finding a HSF that will fit my board and be strong enough for my XP 3200+

hey...mine worked great but my hsf is very loud but doesnt bother mean...installing was a breeze and it works great tho...the hsf i have is the delta something...but its got like 82 cfm and keeps my oced temps down in the low thirtys and low 40s under heavy load...my chip is overclocked at 2.5 rigth now and as soon as i get a new ps i will raise more. dont have good voltage right now but heat is deff nnot a problem

That would be great if I could get my CPU under 40 too. I have the K7N2 Delta ILSR sounds like you have the same.

What are your Case and Ambient temps? WOW, Is 82cfm the airflow of the fan you used!?! What did you throw on the Heatsink?

thats the fan i have on...
my case temps are usually 32 but goes up and down high 35 and low 30...i have 4 80 mm that are i think 30 cfm each case fans tho
i dont have the ilsr but the only differanc between the L and the ILSR is the fan on the northbridge and ILSR has sata onboardno differance in capicotor setup or anythign like that
