Default New CPU/Cooling

Hello,

I am looking into buying a new CPU (AMD Athlon XP 3200+ *400 FSB* Barton (2.20GHz) with AMD Heat Sink).

What cooling would you recommend for this CPU for overclocking (not watercooling)?

I am currently looking at:
Coolermaster Jet-7 AMD Heat Sink Fan

EEK! Not the jet 7 thats for sure. Its decent, but its more looks than performance. If youre looking for GOOD cooling, I recommend the Thermalright SLK series heatsinks. Slap a decent fan on em (they accept 60mm, 80mm or 92mm) and they perform quite well.

Thats my exact processor model and I can keep my temps at 42 MAX (with 92mm tornado).

SLK-800's with a tornado fan were like the best thing a few months ago... I use a volcano 12 and it keep my cpu pretty cool. But please don't get the Jet 7, Shrap is very right about that

Vantec and Thermaltake make great heatsinks.
