    Get a GlobalWin FOP32-1. This is an AMD approved heatsink and fan. AMD requires a stong clip (14-20lbs), under 200g, no coatings (bare alluminum), and thermal pad (grease tends to break down). They are eay to install, a simple clip with a catch on both ends. Because of the strength of the clip you must be careful connecting the second catch (don't slip). The thermal pad works great and will not deteriorate over time (it actually improves slightly after the first week). It is large with many thin fins to give more surface area and the fan is a 60x60x25mm 4200 RPM fan that puts out 27CFM. Ive baught 4 of these things and they actually run closer to 4800RPM. They are a bit noisy, but not too bad.

    I have a Duron 600 that shipped with a basic heatsink and fan. At 600Mhz and 1.6v it ran 50-55'C. I replaced it with a large heatsink with the same fan as the FOP32-1 stapped onto it (YS-Tech 60x25mm to be specific). I managed to run it up to 900Mhz at 1.675v and mantained about a 38-44'C temp with thermal paste. When I added the FOP32-1 with the stock thermal pad, my temps dropped down to 35-39'C and after an hour of Quake3 it took about 15 seconds to drop down to 37'C, 5 minutes to get to 36'C and 15 minutes to get to 35'C. After a week of burn in on the thermal pad, it now runs 35-38'C and takes about 15 seconds to get to 36'C and about 2 minutes to get back down to 35'C. My rigged heatsink usually did not get down below 40'C after heavy play.

    That is pretty impressive to go from 55'C at 600Mhz and now run only 38'C at 900Mhz.

    I also recommend a good 92mm case fan up front blowing fresh air into the case (if you do not already have one). The FOP32-1 runs $20 and the case fans are about $9 and shipping is $4 for the order at:

    Of placed six orders with them and have gotten all within about 4-5 days and the only screw up they did was send me two boxes last time (each with a FOP32-1). Now I have an extra one kicking around. Maybe I slap it on my K6-2 450 and see if the damb thing will hit 500Mhz. By do I like my Duron beter than I ever liked my K6-2 (or my Cyrix for that matter). Durons are just great.

    Also I built another Duron 650 @850Mhz at 1.65v and it ran 33-37'C. So you figure a 1Ghz at 1.75v will probably run about 37-42'C.

    For more case fans, you just need to get a fan with a regular 4 pin connector and run it directly off the power supply. The web site above carries both 3 pin and 4 pin fans.

    What speed CPU you got and what is you case temps?

    Yes, the thermal pad is a must at the minimum! You can also use "Arctic Silver" thermal compound for small contact area as well.
    Another good heatsink is the ALPHA PAL6035. I'm running it with a 38cfm Delta fan and it works very well. My Duron 700@950 runs 30c idle and 40c max after a couple hours of 3D gaming. The only bad thing about this combo is the fan is very loud! Almost reminds you of a jet engine!
    Good Luck!!!
