Is this HSF ok?

I have a new HSF, replacing the POS I had before, (my PC is down at the moment) and I have a 1.4GHz Athlon...

The HSF in question is a GlobalWin Copper series rated for a 1.8GHz processor... Will that be good for cooling?
If you're talking the CAK-38, CAK-38 II, or the CBK-38, they should serve you fairly well assuming you have good through-case air circulation and you're not going to try overclocking it real high.

Oh yeah, forget those speed ratings you see with heatsinks, likewise "AMD Approved". Look at the .c/w, or better yet, Joes heatsink rankings on the front page.
