I'm about to build my new system in my sig, and I was wondering whats the best heatsink for the Opteron 165 and the P180?? I'll be OCing of course, and sound is no problem with me and especially with that case.

 

Any recommendations about my future specs from the pros???

 

Actually gonna OC my XP3000+, but have to wait for exams to be done in a week. I know I won't get much out of it, but good experience.

 

Glad to be a part of the team here too

 

Thanks everyone

I used the stock HS for my Opty 165 at first but after OC'ing it started to get hotter than i wanted. I have since installed a TT Big Typhoon and moved my system into a TT Armor case. Right now I'm running the specs below in my sig and at 2.7GHz idle im at 27C and under full load it gets no higher than 38C.

I can tell you from first hand experience that a case has a lot to do with your temps as well. The opty and Big Typhoon where in a Lian Li case and the temps would get up to 49C under load. Good luck!

I'm gonna suck it up and spend more on a case, since it'll be worth it.

 

It's looking like the Armor now, but I saw the Stacker 810 is around the same price, can really go wrong with picking either one of these cases??

 

Any one have recommendations between the Armor & Stacker 810???
