As the title of this post says.....I need to know which after market CPU cooler is the best for my AMD X2 5600+ ? I want to OC it some and keep it cool at the same time.

I have the S1283, fits both LGA775 and AM2, in case you change to a Core 2 system down the line...

I'm using the freezer 64 pro.

it comes with pre-applied thermal compound but i used arctic silver remover and purifier and replaced it with arctic cooling mx2, which is the best, although that could very well have been what was pre-applied, but i played it safe.

I got one of these a few nights ago, dropped 10c off my cpu while idling, did some gaming and ran sisoft sandra for awhile on it last night....I've yet to see it crack 50c. I'm happy.

Took 5 minutes or less to install it too. :)
