    I'm currently looking to replace my stock heatsink/fan with one a bit more powerful. anyone have any ideas into which one i should get? ive got a AMD Xp 2000+, which currently idle's at 57c, system temp is usually around 25c though.

    I've been looking at the Coolermaster CP5-8JD1F-0L, from here

    Is that good for the price? Or does anyone know any better ones at a similar price.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Edit Just seen This One is it any better? thnx!

    The Aero 7 in your second link is better. There is also a copper one just like it Aero 7+.

    i disrecommend the Aero 7+ Lite, it gives fairly good cooling, but its really loud - it is fairly cheap though

    I really like this one but it's expensive:

    I tried going to the Coolermaster web site. About the only think that worked was a picture of a Jet plane, with accompanying loud roar followed by REALLY annoying music - I wonder if this is indicative of their products.

    Seriously though, their web site (when I got it to work) conspicuously omits noise levels for the Aero 7 series, although it includes them for some of the other models, for example the new Jet 7 at 21-41db, which is still a little noisy at full speed.

    I use this, which is a little more expensive, but keeps my cpu (XP2400+) at 35C under load.

    There's one UK site that has some options, but its rather limited than what I use.

    I'm not sure what you are asking here, but that temp is after running the cpu flat out for about half an hour.

    Current price for that cooler is 14.10 including vat. If it's local then you can call in and get it, save the P&P. If you phone up and order it, you don't have to wait while they pick it from the warehouse.

    ive just realised the aero 7/7+ will not fit on to my motherboard&#33; , and dont think the one u pointed out lynx will either because there sum diode type things about 7.5cm away from the center of the cpu, (its a ga-7va by the way) stupid gigabyte&#33;
