I would really ask for your re-consideration, the one I linked will cool much better as it is made of copper instead of aluminum. I am 14 myself and I wouldn't lean you the wrong way... It has 5 stars from 185 votes which is really good.

Plus you can't tell me this doesn't look sweet- http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage....106-037-03.JPG

Is there any alternative hsf's that are a bit cheaper? My total system is already about $550. After I pay that off and save $100 I will get a cheap liquid cooling system (cant remember which one at the moment)

This looks cool too:

Well I haven't had any problems from it... I have paypal and I haven't had it for that long. You have to get $25 before they send you money....

What kind of emails do they send? Do you just have to read them?

That aftermarket heatsink fan is relatively cheap, it comes with a fan already. Also they send you an email and you click the last link (besides the aol one) and it will take you to that persons site and you have to wait there until it gets validated which is like 30 seconds for me.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...186-103&depa=1 Seems really good.

"i can't believe a CPU fan is so quiet ! i'd been using a Cooler Master fan for a year and it sounded like a jet engine. then i tried a Thermaltake's silent boost for a while, which claimed to be 21dBA. however, the noise is still noticible (i truly suspect the manufacturer exaggerated the quietness) and it cost me a good 30 bucks !"

There again that one is made of all aluminum and I don't think that fan can be replaced. My fan is 54db lol I think you can live with 21.... That is actually very good. Everyones case portrays the sound differently.

I have decided to get this:

for up to 3400+ and cost about $18 total for me. I think this is what I am getting.

you will regret skimping on the HSF if it comes to bite you in the *** i am using an extreme volcano 12+ from newegg and ive already hit 2.5 ghz at only 43 degrees(celsius of course) and all i have are 4 80x80x25 case fans... and it cost me 30 i think after free shipping tho. if you plan on overclocking the HSF can be a very important part... along with the quality of your RAM if you have any questions about RAM ask before you buy it to save yourself alot of trouble
