A.C. Freezer 64 Pro<br><br>
Dirt cheap and does a great job cooling my system. Runs about 41C no matter how high I clock this rig and no matter how voltage I pump into my CPU<br><br>
And it's pretty much silent

I just wanted to say that I agree with Penicilyn.<br>
The Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro is good and costs less than 20€.<br><br>
Much stronger but slightly over your limit is the Scythe Ninja for about 40€.<br>
I guess its the strongest AM2 cooler.

There are plenty here:<br><a href="http://www.frozencpu.com/search.html?mv_profile=keyword_search&mv_session_id=KtNkWNAX&mv_searchspec=AM2" target="_blank">http://www.frozencpu.com/search.html...searchspec=AM2</a><br><br>
Scythe Ninja is not the best. I think either of these (including the heavier Scythe) will beat it.<br><br>
However, also keep in mind what you want to do with your rig. If yuo move it a lot (lanparty), take the weight of the cooling in mind. Many of the ones below weigh up to 2 lbs, while the Arctic Cooler and Zalman are a lot lighter.<br><ul><li><a href="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/5232/cpu-noc-03/Noctua_NH-U12F_CPU_Heat_Sink_Socket_754_775_939_940_AM2.html?tl=g40c14s220" target="_blank">Noctua NH-U12F CPU Heat Sink</a> $64.95 - Expensive, out of stock, but possibly the best out there.</li>

These are the big guys. The Arctic cooler will do a good job for about half the price. However, you'll see a bit lower temps with any of these heavy duty cooler.

i bought the freezer 7 pro for my c2d since my zalman cnps9500 was a complete waste of money. ($65 at the time!)

The Zalman 9700 is out, haven't seen any tests with those yet though. It has a 110mm fan instead of 92mm and also weighs a bit more.

The Thermalright 120 Ultra is actuall a very good unit. Right on the heals of the best within .5c! The bone job is you have to fork over an extra $7 for the AM2 mount kit!

I like my zalman. The highest temp my cpu has ever gotten was 38*C And thats after I've been playing BF2 for a couple hours. <br />
I would say save up a couple extra bucks, but thats just me.

I have no issues with my AC 64.<br>
Quiet, cheap (got mine for $20 shipped) and works well.<br>
I have my 3600+ OC to 2.95ghz and I don't get over 48°C in orthos or while folding. Idle is around 32°C<br><br><i>edit:</i> Wholy old post revival Batman. I did not notice the original post date when I responded.
