Default Gigabyte Heatsink

I was looking at some Gigabyte Heatsinks, and I was wondering if they would be any good. I saw one of them in a AMD 64 3800+ machine over at a PC Discounters by my house, and I thought it looked cool, so I was wondering if they are worth the money? I know people love Thermaltak, but I don't really need the most super cooling heatsink available, cause I don't overclock, at least I have never tried too. http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...128-003&DEPA=0

My main goal is to find a heatsink that looks out of the ordinary, and that does a somewhat better job of cooling than my stock heatsink. I don't really like the look of the standard square. I know it sounds stupid, but im trying to spruce up the inside of my case lol

Looks pretty cool. You could look into Swiftech or the thermalright SLK-948U too, those are pretty good heatsinks and the swiftech one looks weird with it's helicoid design. Find em both at svc.com

You think I would have any problems fitting any of those heatsinks on my Abit KV8 Pro board?

if you don't overclock why get a 50 dollar cooler when you can get a 20-30 dollar hsf that has the same performance.

Get the Coolermaster Jet 7. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-152&depa=0 it looks out of the ordinary and does a good job. Plus you save 20 bucks!

The specs for that cool don't say its compatable with a Socket 754 CPU. Thats why I overlooked it.
