I was running an AMD 2100xp just 2 weeks ago. Since that time I have bought myself a P4 2.4c and a ASUS P4C800 Deluxe. Although I have read that many users have reached 3.5ghz and up with just the stock HSF I still want something a little better. So I tried fitting on my Thermalright AX-7 and Thermaltake Smart Fan 2 on but there is nowhere to place my HSF. I have seen many users in this board use all types of HSF combos onto a similar CPU/MB setup and I just wanna know how u guys did it. Any tip would be good.

CHEERS!:)

I forgot to mention that the Thermalright was made specifically for my AMD but certainly there must be a good way of mounting this on. Would Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive work?

you can buy a p4 adapter that makes you able to use your AX7 on your new 2.4c

shipping is 5 bucks so you might want to wait til you need to order something else to make it worth it.

i have one of these and used it with my slk800a (amd only) and it worked flawlessly. very nice hold and everything fits like its supposed to. it was reviewed here by Joe Citarella on our own front page. this is where i found out about it and what made me try it.

I just checked my stock fan speed. A shameful 2600rpm. Quiet and all but I like the sound of my Thermaltake as it pushes out air at the speed of 4800rpm. I would feel alot more comfortable about overclocking my cpu more with a better cooler.

if you are really looking to get the max out of your chip i would suggest you do like AZN suggested and get a slk900U and a 92mm fan.

you can get the 900 for 39.99 at svc they are on sale right now. you can use just about any 92mm fan you want. it can even run really slow like 2500rpm or so and still get excellent cooling since you are using such a large fan. my slk900 has a 3000rpm panaflo on it. its audible but not too bad. AZN uses some noname brand fan on his and gets incredible temps. i think his runs at approx 2500rpms.
