post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi guys!
PLanning on overclocking my Intel P4 3.00 ghz socket 775 quite a bit and I wondering what heatsinks would be good. I want to stay with air cooling. Ive heard some good feedback on the Big Typhoon, but also the Tuniq: Tower 120. Please give some personal recommendations.

When I used air cooling for my skt.478 pressy, I used an XP-90, but from what I have read on the forum over the last few months, the old XP-90 seems to be loosing favour and there has been a shift towards the Big Typhoon as the best air cooling solution. The only drawback of the BT seems to be that it's size is not always compatible with every motherboard/case, but from what I've read it would seem to work with the majority.

Researching the web to find the best air cooling solution could be a worthwhile exercise, but I would suspect that the current best HS is the Thermaltake Big Typhoon.

Good Luck.

I definately think you should go with the xp-120 with a panaflo 120mm fan med speed or higher with as5. You should have temps around 33C idle and 40-43 full load at stock speed. Like I said with the 1000MHz OC I have temps 38C and 52C-53C idle and full load respectively. The Ambient temp in my dorm room is about 70F-74F. The XP-120 is awesome IMO and when I was looking to build last year this and the xp-90c were the two HS/F of choice.

If noise isn't a problem I'd say an xp-90c with a hardcano fan but that is loud as H311.

PS - if you want to OC your CPU to a great extent I would also suggest going with the Asus P5WD2-E Premium it PWNs and its upgradable to a conroe core in the near future as it has the 975x chipset. Also I am not familiar with your PSU you may want to ask someone in a different section, but whatever you do don't go cheap on a PSU It is one of the most critical components and pwer fluxuations hamper OC'ing.
