    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    the stock one is good, bigdawg and many others on this board have gotten their cpu's overclocked very high with the stock heatsync and they have great temps too.

    arent the volcano 11's really loud? the second one looks like its really good but im not sure for sure, but if teh volcano is loud id probably go with the second.

    As for the aero cool - http://www.amdmb.com/article-display.php?ArticleID=278

    As for the Volcano 11+, its not that loud once you remove the stupid silver fanguard. Sure, you can hear it on full aperature, but it is a 4800RPM fan.

    I've been reading some reviews on the Volcano 11+ and they seem to be mixed
    here are a few I've seen
    Overclockers Café
    this rates it very good

    Motherboards.org
    they say it is OK
    most of all the reviews I see say it is very loud at full speeds, and the temps aren't that great at low speeds...
    bah

    Alright, I found a really nice looking/good performance/supposedly quiet heat sink that has some really good reviews!
    the Gigabyte 3D CPU Cooler
    here's a review on it by Legion Hardware
