Default CPU cooling... ???

I'm getting the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton and I'm applying Arctic Silver 5...I'd prefer a fan+heatsink that is copper, not too big, not too heavy, and not to noisey...suggestions?

try www.tigerdirect.com they have all sorts of great hsf. I prefer tmd fans. Have the motor on th side of the fan rather than underneath, you get better air flow to the cpu that way.
