Suggestions for cooling my 2600+

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an Athlon XP 2600+ and it is currently overclocked to 2.2GHz (from 2.03) but it idles at around 50 Celcius. Under load it goes up to 54 Celcius and probably higher.

I have already purchased a Big Typhoon and it (barely) did not fit in my case. Actually I could put it in the case and let it touch the PSU and it still worked but it also came with a bad screw (slightly bent) not allowing me to tighten it on the CPU all the way and blah blah. Point being, I am going to return my BT and I am looking for a new cooling unit.

Do you guys have any suggestions for a good cooling unit (under $50) for my CPU. I would like to have temperatures in the 30's idle at least. Thanks for any suggestions

Thermaltake 1838 would probably fit the bill (I use it to cool 2x Opteron 270s)

What was the space issue? Height? Or width?
