Need a good but cheap heatsink? Go with Taisol, that's the one I got. Here are my specs

Tbird 800 @ 1029Mhz @ 2.01v (Can't go any higher which sucks)
Asus A7V
Artic Silver II, it helps with 1 degree from Artic Silver 1
Temps idle = 41 Degree Centigrate
Temps Load = 44 Degree Centigrate
It's loud but it works,
well whats a good size of fan then? i need some help here. im surprised i got up to 1000 stable with my 750 tbird, but i need some help please thanks
Minimum on Tbirds I would say 60mm. Anything lower then that you are asking to fry your CPU. The heatsink you showed there really isn't going to cut it even if it's twin fans. When teh fans are counter rotating they only produce more pressure not CFM. There really isn't a good reason to stack fans like that.
that hsf on ebay doesn't look good. too fancy a design with too few fins, and double-stacking fans doesn't help anyway. spend the extra and get a good hsf.
i also have the abit kt7 raid (the best motherboard i ever had) and i want to make shure it will fit.
