Ok here's the story i just put together my freinds computer and i told him where to get the stuff and everything and he got a chromeorb fan for his 1.1ghz tbird.
Ok now when he's on it its around 45-50 degrees C and i told him that thats way too much and that i didnt like it and that he should send it back and get a better fan becuz he was gettin heat related lockups even with the case open
so i suggested rather Alpha or Globalwin. Well the Alpha isnt in at ColdCPU and may not be in for a little while but the Globalwin FOP38 is in and i would like to know should i wait for the alpha which is only like $5 more or should i just go ahead and get the Globalwin instaed of waiting?

well reading over at 2cooltek
the globalwin does pretty good except for sound but thats ok for him he doesnt mind that he's had worse(believe me) it beats the alpha i was looking for but how much does the other alpha cost havent seen a price for it the PEP66 looks nice but how much compared to the FOP38 for $25

The heatsink itself on the Alpha is better. The fan is worse. The ideal combination is the Alpha PAL 6035 w/38cfm Delta, same fan that is found on the FOP38. Both are available at www.2cooltek.com

Actually the PEP66 will work, but you need to remove the feet on the heatsink (the Athlons already come with the feet). These have a very good advantage, that you can duct them easily to the outside and use an 80-92mm case fan for more airflow without all the noise.
