The Zalman is for quiet, ThermalTake is for OC'ing.

I have ordered a ThermalTake Jet -7 for my XP2500+, i'll tell you how it goes, hopefully get it tomorrow.

Default Erm

Erm that heatsink fans max RPM is 2400 the stop heatsink fan runs around 3300 ?? slower the fan the more heat.

I run a Volcano 12 that runs at 6000 rpm and is quiet noise but keeps the pc cool.

I think you might be mistaken, Cooler Master make the Jet 7's

IMO the Volcano 12 would be ideal for overclocking your Athlon
