i want to get my 750 duron to about 1000MHz. would a fop 38 handle the temps? I have good case airflow so that's not a problem (2 80mm, 1 120 mm intake, 1 120mm, 1 80mm and psu fan exhaust)

Have a 850 TBird running @ 1050 with Taisol HS and Delta Fan on it, runs @ 35 degrees. Anywasy, sorry I got side tracked. I used to have the FOP 38 on it. Was Ok. But the temp did push 46 -48 degrees at times. This caused my computer to crash.

Also when I moved back home from college, my room was much hotter due to it being in the attic and the FOP 38 really struggled with keeping the temp down. I was the thermal pad and now I use Arctic Silver 2, but the temp was about 38 - 40 idle. If you can try somthing different like:

TaiSol CGK760092 about £15 in UK
Glaciator - Not sure of Price
ThermalRight SK6 about £30
ThermoEngine V60-4225 -
GlobalWin CAK38 - About £30
GlobalWin WBK38 - About £20

For comparative review, check out the other system coolers section @

I would reccomend the Taisol as it is the cheapest and it performs really well. Check out my other post on this HS

should be fine. If you have one, use it. If not, go ahead and invest in an SK-6 from Thermalright. It will definately get you there.
