Default best socket A heatsink

Ive got a rubbish Jet7 the alu one and its giving me constant temp of 50C it was higher when i overclocked so i turned it down abit. i would love to get a Thermalright sp-97 i think it is but it needs the 4holes around the socket in the mobo and mine doesnt have that. so which other coolers could i get? i would like an ajustable fan speed one but i can easily mod that in. any ideas? thanks

Thermalright SLK-900A that's what I got and works great. I also have that Jet7 but I used the heatsink for my secondary computer and used the blower fan in my case mod project so the actual blower is behind my motherboard CPU socket blowing in

Anywho that Thermalright SLK-900A works great and I think they got now SLK-948U for socket A that has heatpipe technology which is supposed to work really good. Both of those can take up to 92x38 fan which is a 92mm high performance fan, a normal 92mm fan is 92x25, 80mm's are the same way, 25 is normal widthe and 38 is high performance....

It's a nice solid copper heatsink and works good..

Also appearantly coolermaster released a new heatsink and fan combo called the HyperSeries or something along those lines. Ag3 claims this has given him yet another decrease in temperatures from his already adequately cooled system

There are universal ones, which I think is actually what the U stands for so it probably has both. Socket 478 is Intel so they are basically telling you it fits both Socket A (462) AMD's and Socket 478 Intels because they provide the brackets for each. I bought the SLK-948U I believe for an AMD64 System and it was like that, has brackets for Intel and AMD. They are smart, they want both industries to buy

If you have another question link me to the product and I'll take a look at it.

BTW: I think I made a mistake, the SLK-948U is for 64bit systems and alike, I think the SLK-947U is the current Socket A, especially if you're looking at it

i absolutely love the dp102, deep impact is the name, its got a superconductor/copper design along with the ability to mount 2 fans on your heatsink, amazing cooling power if you ask me... unfortunately i've only found it for around 50 dollars US

Yeah I've seen that leonidas, it's pretty wild and two fans on it is just crazy. I heard its pretty monsterous in weight but so are the SLK's.
