I've got a Dragon+ and xp2000 I haven't put it together yet (I was hoping to start this afternoon). I've got the stock fan that came with the xp chip and I've got a dragon orb 1. Which was a mistake I didn't know their was a d03.

Which fan should I use to get it up and running I don't want to overclock yet until I get a better fan or at least see where i'm at. and I don't want to try both unless I have too. I just want the best one on there. I've got Artic Silver 3 if that helps make up your mind.

Also since I'll probably have to get a new fan anyway which should I get. I've heard the volcanoes may not fit because of the caps next to the chip. Let me know if this is a problem or what high end fans work well with the mobo.

I have the Dragon+ and like my Glaciator I. It's nice and quiet and I get pretty good temps with it. I had to lap the crap out of it to get it flat and to get the machining grooves removed. If they still have any, the original Glaciator is $17.50 + shipping. The newer Glaciator II is about $30.

Glaciator 2

The new Glaciator is very nice... hardly required any lapping, keeps temps low, and its quiet!

I run a 1700+ XP and I use a ThermalTake Volcano 5. Because of your speed being greater than mine, I would recommend the ThermalTake Volcano 6cu+ with the copper core.
