reccomendation on a good cpu cooler

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to overclock my 2.2GHz amd athlon 3500+ sometime soon and I was wondering if any of you guys have a good reccomendation on a fan for overclocking, it has to be something not too pricey and available in a store(I hate ordering things off the internet).

What sort of price range are you looking at? It would be best to get it off the internet though, as most stores overprice that stuff like crazy.

Well im asuming you have a Emachines comp? If so you cant overclock because of the lack of options in the bios.

yep

that board supports up to the athlon 4000, not sure if it supports dual core though.

but why replace the cpu when you can replace the motherboard and just overclock your 3500

Maybe....How much would a good motheroard with atleast 3 ram slots and a x16 pci-e slot cost that has overclocking abilities? Oh, and if you're still not too busy can someone still reccomend a good fan for a cpu?
