the Big Typhoon is probably about the best HSF you can get, any better and you would be looking at water cooling. the typhoon beats the CNPS9500 by a couple of degrees and it is cheaper. when i run my x2 at 2.5ghz@1.4v it idles between 25-27 degrees and will not go above 38-39 degrees c, the AS5 hasn't even "worn in" yet.

edit: whoops forgot to mention i'm using the typhoon

just be forewarned, it is huge and the install is reasonably difficult. its a good thing your pc hasn't been built yet has it?

i personally think that the Big Typhoon is more effective from many peoples posts on temps and the fans they use, most the big typhoon.

Off Topic: i just realized that my Intel Pentium 3 is actually decent for its age ( 6 years running on 7). It handles A LOT which minimal lagging.
Currently im running, 2 antivirus programs, 1 Spyware program, 1 Fire wall, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Mozilla, MSN, iTunes, and Limewire, and its running REALLY WELL! props to the mult-tasking ability of the intel. its 733MHz so....and the FSB is like no more than 200
