    I need a good Heatsink/Fan for a A7N8X Deluxe mobo running an Athlon 2100+ T'Bred Revision B CPU. I am not looking to overclock (at least for now), so the main thing I care about is the noise. I want it to be quiet! I know alot of HSFs dont fit this mobo due to the lack of space, so this is why I am posting this. Please help me out!!!

    OK, so after some more research, 45 dB isn't bad for a HSF. Now the question is, where to buy this (Pricegrabber time). Please confirm if this is a good HSF or not!

    OK, so do I buy the most expensive one? Does this stuff go between the CPU and the socket A???

    prolly not! I would think between the CPU and the heatsink. Am i right???

    I have the same board & Chip and I'm using a Thermalright SLK-800 with YS-Tech adj. 80mm. I running about 43C idle and 49c full load, that's oc'ed. 12x186fsb = 2,232mhz 1.75v. I would recommend this setup or get an SK7 instead for about 10 bucks less.

    ugh this thread is making me dumber

    The good heatsinks don't include a fan, so pick up a Panaflo or something and you're good to go. From my experience I'd recommend an Alpha heatsink, but if you're tight for space it might not fit.

    :dunno:

    Thanks for the help guys. I am not really looking for anything really good (like where you have to buy a separate fan and heatsink). Just something that is decent. Havoc, how loud is your fan? I am looking for quiet! Thanks!

    It's adjustable, so you can lower the rpm's to be as quiet as you want it to be. I have mine at the max wich is around 3600 rpm. At max you can here it but it's not a high pitched whine that you get with 60mm fans, it's more of a low hum. Go with a SK7(19.99) or AX-7(17.99) and a quiet 80mm fan and your set.
