    What fan and heat sink for my 650E FC-PGA

    By reading this board, I have concluded that I need to trash my retail fan and heatsink, scrape off that thermal tape stuff, and get a good after-market fan/heatsink/thermal compound. My question is which ones should I get.

    First, the heat sink. Seems like the Alpha PEP-66 is mentioned often here, but the GlobalWin FDP 32 is recomended by heatsink-guide.com. Is there any real difference?

    Second, what about the fan, some of the heat sinks come with a fan as part of a combo. One offers a Sunon 23.5 CFM fan, the other a YS-Tech 27.2 CFM fan. Which one is better, or should I get a Black Label 38 CFM fan instead?

    Finally, what of thermal compound. Am I safe to go with the compound offered in the combo packages, or should I strike out on my own and specifically get a certain type?

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

    Oops, almost forgot. I have a MS-6309 motherboard and am trying to squeeze 866 out of it. Currently at 806 on a 124 FSB, but will not boot at 866 even with 1.85 Vcore.

    PEP66 all the way. I was going to get one for my 600E but then I ended up buying a 600E with the new stepping program. These only come in slot 1. But as for you PEP66 all the way.

    pep66 is great, also, look into the arcticooler. www.hardocp.com has an awesome review of it in which it beats out the pep66. It's also really small and wont take up dimm slots.
