Anyone know any good heatsinks?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Can anyone give me some ideas for a really good AM2 socket CPU coolers. Money is not a problem, but i want it to be air cooled, i may make the change to water at some point in the future but not right now.

i would have to fit my own fan to that thermalright extreme wouldnt i?

The main reason im asking is my current heatsink struggles to hold less than 40c idle temps with my CPU at stock levels, i havent dared turn it up yet coz the fan just cant deal with it and im sick of it.

I want something that would make hell cold

TRUE or Tuniq Tower. And yes, the TRUE does not come with a fan... unless it's a combo deal or something.

If your case has the room, ThermalTake Big Typhoon.

I've ran that in the past with great results. The quietness is a plus too!
