    I have heard Alphas are good. I've also heard the name GlobalWin.

    I say whatever does the trick is great! I have a noname h/s with a BIG fan! 26cfm on top of that puppy! I had to build an adapter to mount it on the h/s though! Keeps the chip really nice and cool! I don't think expensive and EFFECTIVE are always hand in hand! I know I am gonna take some CRAP about this because I am a newbie here, here is how i see it!

    Big H/S + Big fan CFM = good cooling!

    Ofcourse, there is a limit to fan cooling! Depends on what you are running and how fast you are running it! My k63-400 is happy with my setup, and so am I!

    OH yeah, if the temp in the case goes up, ie ambient air temp inside, all the h/s and fan will do no good! Can't cool blowing HOT air ! Also get an extra case fan if you can!

    Modest words of a humble fool !!!

    It has been shown that many cheap thin fin heatsink are almost as effective as large, expensive cold forge heatsink when coupled with a powerful pan (ie YS-tech 26 cfm fan) ... you have learned well, my young grasshopper.
