After getting my PIII CuMine 600E to 960 with the help of this forum I have now decided
to get an Athlon 1.33 Axia cpu and possibly the Asus mobo that handles DDR. I'm confused by the amount of Socket A coolers on the market and need some advice from you.

The cooler must be quiet. I'm not planning on going "overboard" as i did with my CuMine(ie peltiers & water cooling) but something that is quiet and does'nt take up an extra memory slot. I've checked out the Alpha and GlobalWin. Any ideas on which model between the two ?

Thanks for your advice
