Question CPU Heatsink/fan

I'm thinking of buying a new heatsink/fan, and wanna get some advice about what to buy. What do ya'll recommend? (check out specs below.) I'm thinking about spending around 30-40 online.

Thanks

Kizzeith

I'm in the process of building almost the same computer. I recommend the ThermalTake Volcano 9 heatsink/fan.

I have the Coolermaster Aero7 Combo & Love it. The Jet7 looks pretty good too. http://www.coolermaster.com/?LT=engl...st&p_class=111[/URL]

That's mine. I like it. Keeps things cool, plus it's quite.

It fit's an AMD or Intel

My system is similar to yours. I use the Thermalright 800a with a Thermaltech Smart Fan 2. It's very nice. I had a Thermaltech 7+, but the thing sounded like a jet engine taking off. I keep the fan set on the lowest setting and it idles between 36-38.
