    Hey. My friend and I are building him a new computer. He already has a mouse, keyboard, speakers, 17in LCD, HDD, graphics card, power supply.

    All we need is a board, ram, cpu, and heatsink. We are gona get an A7N8X, mobile 2500XP...now we need a great heatsink..he has $900 but were only spendin like 500 max. So we got about 60ish to spend so im thinking the SP-97 Would that work good with a mobile 2500xp?

    Why not get the retail package Barton 2500+? Comes with CPU cooler.

    That is a very nice heatsink (SP-97) but you also need a fan for it.

    The mobile retail doesnt come with a heatsink does it...? And he wants to overclock it alot...so the sp97 would be great...and it will fit right?

    How about the SP-120?

    Zalman's 7000A-CU should be good too.

    Why not go for Abit NF7-S instead of A7N8X?

    I cant find that on newegg.... or the thermalright website..they have an xp 120...but it doesnt look as good..its silver so i dont think its coper...but it could be.

    Isnt the sp 97 thermalrights the best heatsinks there are tho...for cooling?

    Will it work with the mobile 2500?

    No they are not.
    It's a fine sink, but not "the best".
    The 120's will be released very soon.
    If your board has mounting holes around the socket it should fit.
    I believe that TR's website has a mobo compatability list.

    Why the mobile?

    Less performance with lower FSB of only 266MHz.

    The non mobile Barton 2500+ is better suited for non modile use.

    Hey, this is bigdawgfoxx's friend Matt..I just registered.

    The reason Iam getting the mobile is because it is unlocked and is pretty easy to get to 2.4 or 2.5Ghz

    If the sp-97 isnt the best then is the sp-120? I dont see it on their site, also when should it be out?

    Behind the sp-120 is the sp-97 the best?
