    Heatsink recommendation

    Hey guys;
    I am after a new heatsink and I want advice on which one to pick. It has to have the big clip that use's all the socket notches, not a noisy delta fan and perform well. Hear is what I came up with:

    *ThermoEngine V60-4210 (Socket A/FC-PGA)*

    *ThermoEngine V60-4225 (Socket A/FC-PGA)*

    *TaiSol CGK760092 CPU Cooler - Duron/Thunderbird (Socket A)*

    *TaiSol CGK742092 CPU Cooler - Duron/Thunderbird (Socket A)*

    Please help me pick, it's to going on a T-Bird 1.2Ghz, sitting in a Abit Raid. Here is a link to the coolers http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...oolers_18.html Cheers guys!

    I'm currently using a ThermoEngine with the stock YS-tech fan.

    It's very quiet for a performance cooler, and of course, the heatsink is very good, so if you did decide to stick a Delta 7k on it, it would be a top notch cooler.

    With a 1.2GHz CPU, I'd go for the one with the fastest fan.

    The Taisols too, are very good.

    Get the Taisol 760 (copper base insert) Just as quiet and performs much better than the thermoengines.

    I say neither. If noise is a problem go with the Millennium Glaciator. You can get it for 48 shipped from pcnut.com. If noise is not a problem get the ThermalRight SK-6, it can be had for arround 35 dollars. This heatsink will out perform any other heatsink you can find for upto 80 dollars.

    The Taisols are kickass coolers, and don't get the recognition they deserve. Go CGK 742 or 760, they perform similarly.

    Get them from here http://www.theoverclockingstore.co.u...5&categoryid=5

    long link

    Actually, check out all the coolers on the site. All the big names are there
