CPU Heatsink

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was wondering what you guys would reccomend for cooling my CPU? I will be running an Athalon 64 X2 4400+ on my DFI LP NF4 Ultra-DR Expert with 2GB of G SKill Extreme in this case:

Do you think i will have heating problems? I am just having trouble finding the right CPU Heatsink. My buddy bought a Thermaltake Big Typhoon for his almost the same setup for his Opteron 148 but hes afraid to try to put it on cuz he has heard ppl of snapping there motherboards. I want something smaller. Quiet. and that cools well. Thanks for your help.

I'm a huge fan of this model.

Very quiet and cools very well. A little on the pricey side (and heavy side) but its lowish profile and bolt-through design never caused any problems for me. I een picked up a board by it once! ( I don't recommend that by the way, its just taking a stupid risk)

 

By the way, you're gonna scrap the Aspire PSU right?

Honestly, I am not a fan of Zalman. I have 2 computers, and in both I have Thermalright XP-90's. Now they have their new SI-120, which you might want to take a look at. But I absolutely love my XP-90 and I highly recomend them!

With the 2 rear exhaust fans that your case provides you might look at the Zalman 9500. It will exhaust right into your case fans.
