Default How do I find the right heatsink/fan?? n00b

Hey all,

I just bought a barebones system from tiger and I guess it doesn't come with a heatsink/fan for the cpu, can someone help me out for something that is cheap and decent?

heres the link to the kit
Asus M2N-MX SE Plus GeForce 6100 Socket AM2 Barebone Kit - AMD Athlon X2 5000+ 2.60GHz OEM, 2GB Kingston DDR2-667 Memory, ATX Clear Side Mid-Tower Case, 450 Watt Power Supply at TigerDirect.com
thanks
-nick

Thanks, good to know I got a good deal

Well, maybe I am missing something, but I don't see it in the kit? The CPU just came in a small clear plastic thing with only the small square processor...the motherboard doesn't seem to have anything with it either. Where the processor fits in there is some black plastic pieces around it, which looks like a heat sink would go there...

I think I know what they look like, just a layered metallic square/fins with a fan right?

Okay, well If it didn't come with one, what kind would I get?
thanks guys

ahh ok its OEM then thats a bit odd thatthey didn't chuck anything in with it. yeah layered metal fins to get the optimum surface area to release heat... Arctic cooling 64 pro gets my vote
