I have my eyes on an AMD 64 3200+ (Winchester). Im getting it as an OEM and I was wondering what could be the best heatsink for it. Noise doesn't bother me that much, but I dont want my PC to sound like a jet... Some help?

Coolermaster Hyper 6 (I think that fiits your platform) or Thermaltake Tower 112 (Its a heavy beast).

I believe you need to use these with 90mm fans (unlike the XP-120 which a 120mm fan)

I just noticed you're from Qatar. I had a good friend in college from Qatar who said he was the President's cousin. This was like 4 years ago so I'm not sure if it's the same President but he use to tell me some funny stories about back home.

I swear those towers are a bad thing waiting to happen. Something about hanging that much weight from some thin mobo scrrs me. If you are going to go thermaltake instead of thermalright, go with the heatpipe 101 . Same idea as the tower, less weight, same cooling ability.
