Default Need heatsink suggestions for Opteron 146

Hi All,

After visiting and reading thread at many boards, I found my mobo, MSI-K8NGM2-FID, support Opteron 100 series exactly.
Could anyone let me know the appropriate heatsink and fan for using with Opteron146 if I want to buy from this site;

Thanks in advance.

it's s939 so any HSF that says it is compatable with s939. you could get a TT big typhoon or some massive zalman cooler

Here are the cheapest opteron (939) as I found;

1.Opteron 144
- PIB = $155.66 ; http://www.pcconnection.com/ProductD...ourceID=k15506
- Retail with heatsink/fan = $159 ; http://www.mwave.com/mwave/skusearch...iteria=BA22046

2.Opteron 146
- PIB = $171.44 + S&H ; http://www.pcconnection.com/ProductD...urceID=k15506.
- Retail with heatsink/fan = $181+8 = $189 ; http://www.atacom.com/program/print_...UX_AK8S_14_1J.
(I ordered this item but they inform me they sold out and will available in the next 2 weeks).

3.Opteron 148
- PIB = $207.63 + S&H ; http://www.monarchcomputer.com/Merch...&AFFIL=pg&NR=1 .
- Retail Box with heatsink/fan = $236.99 + S&H ; http://www.chiefvalue.com/app/produc...ocessors%20PC.

in other words bang for buck lol. i would say the 146. just look for s939 coolers on newegg or some other site, perhaps the site of a local pc retailer.

Depends on how much money you want to spend on the heatsink, 10-*** dollars. You might also want to pick up a tube of AS5

lol, pzero's right if you're going for an aftermarket cooler definitely make sure to get some AS5 while you're at it. i would reccomend a TT cooler, the Big Typhoon if you're looking at the more expensive air coolers or their mid range coolers are pretty good too.
