Default Socket A Cooling suggestions.

I finally ordered 2x 10krpm Raptors for RAID -0 on my "System 1".

I now want to try and sort my second system out, first starting with cooling:

What Socket A cooling solution would you recommend? I don't want to spend more than £20 really... its my second system, just want better than stock heatsink and fan.

At the moment my AMD Athlon XP2500+ (1.83GHz) is overclocked to 2.0GHz but I want it to 2.2GHz which is usually possible with stock HSF... but everyone knows my dust problem so i'll need something a bit more effective to get adequate cooling.

Current Idle Temp: 59C
Current Load Temp: 65C

It runs very stable on all benchmarks at the moment.

I read a couple of reviews on the Coolermaster Jet-7 AMD Heatsink Fan and I have ordered it along with my Raptors and a new Logitech MX510 mouse for playing UT!

It cost me £23.49 (which is $43.71 USD converted at XE.com)

I want to get 2.4GHz out of my Barton XP2500+ (1.83GHz), I have read a review where they got it to 2.42GHz with 220MHz FSB using a multiplier of 11.
