Stock X2 Heatpipe cooler be better?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Would switching to the stock X2 heatpipe HSF be a good upgrade from my Silent Boost? Or would I be better off with say, an XP-90?

Personaly, I'd go with aftermarket for CPU cooling. If you have a large case and decent budget, about the best A64 heatsink out there is the Thermaltake Big Typhoon. Very quiet and extremly effective, but also very large and heavy.

An XP-90 wouldn't cool as well, and you'd need to buy a fan to go with it. (I most cases.)
