thanks again Atomic.
according to the review, it clearly says that the stock heatsink/fan is at "low" speed
would the stock fan for the processor amd 64 x2 3800 work just fine ? or should i get a different one?

The fan is thermally controlled which makes it run at different speeds depending on how hot the CPU is running. The stock HSF should be just fine for your computer. :D

It's more than likely that your HSF is an AVC. AMD has been using their heatsinks for years. They are just labeled with AMD stickers. :D
