Default HSF for ASUS 754 Socket - What to buy?

A good friend of mine is getting a bunch of new parts.

He decided on this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-512&depa=0
and since I dont know that much about 64-bitters, I dont know anything about the HSF mounts it uses.

Can someone save us some trouble and show me some decent, heatsink/fans that would fit this?

(Note, I mentioned he should get a 939, but its not in his budget. Just thought I'd mention so you dont refer it to me. )


You're the guy from that hamburger train, right?

get 939 pin hahaha (forced refferal)

OK, not to worry, but thing is, if you cant get 939 pin FX, get 939-pin athlon-64, and get board on VIA K8T800 PRO chipset.

get the zalman CNPS7000- CU series cooler, though they are heavy (750 gms) i believe, but looking at this board, they'll surely fit as transistors at one side arent high enough, as the cooler is smaller in width at bottom, and becomes wider at top.


they have qualified motherboard list as well, see if this mobo qualifies.

Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
4096MB DDR Kingston Hyper-X
GigaByte GA-P35-DS3R
XFX 9600GT AlphaDog
Seagate 2 X 320GB SATA2
LG L246WH Flatron 24"

I think thats a bit too much cooler for him.

I was thinking something more... simple. He's not much of an overclocker so he doesnt need something that nice.

Then go with something Thermaltak, they are sold everywhere, and are usually not to expensive. I have decided to go with this one myself, though it is a a little on the expensive side. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...128-003&depa=0

They also make something for $45 too.
