Default CPU cooling... ¿?¿

I'm getting the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton and I'm applying Arctic Silver 5...I'd prefer a fan+heatsink that is copper, not too big, not too heavy, and not to noisey...suggestions?

why are you concerned about weight and size?

I got the thermaltake Volcano 11 because i was having overheating problems with my XP2800+ but christ at full revs (5000rpm) this thing is LOUD, however, at lower revs its a very good heatsink, its copper and does a great job of cooling. and comes with a nifty PCI plate with a rev adjustment knob which i am currently modding to mount onto a 3.5" plate for fullfrontal rev adjustment

Just pray you dont get heating problems like me. It SUCKS.
