I have just bought a Athlon64 3000+ (Socket 939) and an MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum.

 

What is the best air based cooling for my CPU? I am an overclock fan.

 

XP-120 + Vantec Thermoflow 120mm fan

By no means am I an expert, in fact, I have only used one air cooling system other then an OEM sync. However, I bought an AeroCool HT-101 and it's lowered my CPU temp from 10-25F depending.

 

And there are plenty of reviews on it out there with nothing but good to say about it.

dont use a fan with thermal sensor like the vantec thermoflow as a fan on your heatsink. your fan will have a hard time regulating the rpm with respect to the temperature it measures :)

 

and all i got to say is, whatever heatsink the d00d recommended, i wont say there is "the best" heatsink cos each of them will differ by 1-2C in terms of performance.. that is negligible to me ah. just use your budget, mobo compatibility and case spacing as a guide and you be fine ;)
