I have an AMD 750 Duron based system that I want to try to passive cool to reduce noise. Overclockers tend to know most about heatsinks so here goes

running a bog standard heatsink with no name and no fan my cpu levels out at about 80 centigrade when running at 50%. I reckon a big dual heatsink with the fans taken off will drop this to a safe leve (60 or below)

My case is well ventilated (it has no sides)

best bet seem to be the Vos 32 or FKK50 sinks

Anyone willing to try this out on their system before I buy one? Or maybe you already know. Will this work?
