I've seen good reviews on the Cooler Master Aero 7 Lite. I was thinking of getting one for my XP 2800+

There is a review on the Thermalright. It says its the best Athlon XP Cooler.



The Blue Bar is the SP97 (this is temp. so lower is better)

The other coloured bars are other notable Athlon XP heatsinks they have tested.

thank you for your replies, although i do have a problem, my motherboard does have the 4 mounting holes next to the cpu but my case doesnt, thereforefore my options are limited. so i was thinking either the COOLERMASTER AERO 7 LITE or the ZALMAN CNPS7000B-AlCu how ever i also found a thermaltake polo 375, so out of these 3 which would be the better option.

List your mobo, or go to the Zalman site and check to see if the Zalman is compatible with your mobo.
