Default cpu fan advice

A while back i asked about a heat problem i was having. I was recommended to get a zalmans 7700cu. After researching i found that this will not work with my mb/processor. I have a socket a processor on an asus a7v333 mb. After looking around i found the Thermaltake VOLCANO 11+. Just wondering if this is a good product or if i shoud be looking at something else. Ihave found it for $22 with free shipping on pricewatch.

I have a thermaltake volcano12, it's a pretty good one, but there's better out there.

If I were you, see if you can get a gigabyte 3d rocker cooler. I say it's one of the best heatpipe cpu cooling systems out there. It's not fat like that zlaman's one, so that's it's main upside. It's a little expensive, but worth the cash I say, it'll easily cool much more efficiently than a volcano... especially a broken one like mine.

Later-A-Much, and LONG LIVE THE D!
