few quick questions, thanks
i just bought an AMD XP 2400+ mobile processor, i plan on upgrading and need to know the single best and cheapest model of heatsink/fan, ive seen these large round ones for about 50 dollars, which can in most cases accept 2 fans and appear to offer best performance? is there some trick or tip that can get me a nice heatsink/fan without spending 50? id like to spend around 20 dollars if at all possible... thanks in advance...
...also, im planning on cutting holes in a clear side panel on my case and adding a few 120mm fans, is this going to help with cooling much? or should i go for a front-->back sorta setup? and can i cut a hole in the side with the motherboard mounted and put some fans behind to help with hot temps?
last, these fan controllers that fit into the front of your pc in a regular bay, do they allow me to connect more fans? or do i need to buy more power connectors..
any suggestions that may help even if not directly addressed in my questions are extremely welcome, any crazy ideas at all.
Thanks alot in advance all
The World is my trashcan and i intend to fill it...
