im currently using a volcano 6cu and my temps are a little high is there a better unit available that will cool much more?
 
Just A Question?

Does the PAL8045 clamp onto the socket or does it mount with hardware through the motherboard? If it mounts with bolts through the motherboard it may not work with his Cellie board.
 
im very pleased with my Glaciator II's performacne. and they
regular glaciaotrs are cheaper 17.50 and cool just as good
as an Alpha or Pal.

It uses the mobo bolts, so you're out of luck there. :(

You might try the ThermalRight AX-7 with the same Sunon fan though.
 
I don't think the coolermaster heatpipe has to be bolted to the mobo(correct me if I'm wrong). Its up there in performance and only $28 on newegg.com
 
Best air combo for Sockets:

ThermalRight AX-7 w/ Delta80mm 80cfm!

That would be such a killer for Intel as these will cool your system down to like 30 degrees!

Just make sure you REALLY want that 80CFM fan, It is louder than a 747. Have you ever heard one in person? The 68 CFM is alot quieter.
 
I downloaded some sound files of it. The thing is loud! If I can't handle the noise, I'll get a Rhetostat (um... not sure about the spelling on that one).

The Alpha kicks *** even with a weak fan. Mine is nearly silent with a Sanyo Denki 80x25mm fan. And still cools great.
 
It all depends on the amount of money you want to spend. The Swiftech MC370s are nice, the glaciators and the new Thermalright all are good sinks. Get the right fan for your noise tolerances and off you go.
 
glaciator 2 is on par with the alpha with a delta, and is very quiet. its a good hsf.
the thermalright ax-7 or the new slk-600 are also quite good, onpar with the swifty mc462a, maybe even a little better
