I have a 3500+ (newcastle) with an MSI K8T Neo2 FIR and I was wondering what your recomendations for heatsinks would be.

xp-120
coolermaster hyper 48

anything else? I am nost even sure if the xp-120 will fit my proc because all the articles I read didn't say anything about supporting a 3500+.

But I like my low RAM timings so this is what I run for gaming and what not.

Mobo:Asus A8V
Core(newcastle or winchester):newcastle
Speed:2409
Bus:219
Multiplier:11
Voltage:~1.55-1.6 I dont remember and Im not at home
Cooling:coolermaster Hyper 48
Ram(speed ie:DDR400@stock):DDR400
Latency(memory timings):2-2-2-5
Idle temps(C):30
Load temps(C):48
Ok, so I have an answer regarding the compatibility of the hyper 48.

Which (in your opinions) is the better of the two? xp-120 or hyper 48.

Thanks for the help.

you shouldnt limit yourswefl to just these two solutions.

read plenty of reviews that compare efficiency of heatsinks, decide what your willing to pay, and select the best from there. If you cant afford water cooling, but dont mind laying down some green, go with the thermaltake pipe101 and a 92mm fan (i have the thermaltake silentcat 9CM).

Also keep in mind that you dont necessarilly need the best cooling with athlon 64s. It is probable that your CPU will reach its clock ceiling before its thermal ceiling, Especially with the new winchester core.

It's not the proc, it's the motherboard that should be asked if the cooler fits.

true, but the reviews I read only mentioned it being able to attach to 754 and not 939, hence my question.

I have read reviews, I am not limiting myself to those two. I also asked what other heatsinks are good (in your opinions)

So the xp-90? I was looking into that one but the xp-120 seemed a bit better. I will look for reviews with the zalman 7000b cu and 7000b alcu.

It IS probably better, but it doesn't fit many situations due to it's size. The XP-90 came about due to this fact, and covers what the 120 can't fit.

interesting, I will probably just get the xp-90 because I was reading a review on the 120 and it said not to move your computer a lot once you put it on because people have cracked their motherboards with it.

Thanks!

I would believe that fairly easily. They are quite heavy.
