    Fan for Athlon

    Greetings.

    I'm looking for a new set of fans for my Athlon CPU, as the fans I have now (that came with the heatsink) are noisy as all heck. I've tried replacing them with some older and quieter fans from Socket 7 heatsinks I had available, but the computer would then mysteriously reboot itself while playing some games, leading me to suspect overheating had occured. (Actually is this a correct assumption -- would the K7 fans really spin faster/dissipate more heat than the quieter Socket 7 fans I tried?) Thank you.

    hell yes..
    the old crappy fans you put on would do nothing on a K7, just leave them on and put your case covers back on

    K7 fans run at 6000 rpm and above, so they tend to be noisey. If you find some that work and are quiet, I want them also.
