The AF64 Pro is only $23.99 at svc.com....and it's one of the best bang for your buck HSFs. So for around the same price, what HSFs are you talking about?

He said he wanted it to be around the $30 mark, and I thought the AF64 Pro with AS5, matches that.

So the fan I bought... didn't fit my motherboard. Don't get me wrong it was for the correct socket, my motherboard had too many capacitors around it making it almost impossible to really fit it in. There just wasn't enough room.

Yeah it happens, but as nick said, check to see if you mounted it correctly. The heatsink should be facing towards the exhaust fans which is in the back.

I'd never suggest going 64-bit. Still a ton of driver issues with any version of windows in 64-bit.

Whenever doing overclocking, I always suggest getting an aftermarket heatsink and using Artic Silver.
