I'm currently using the stock heatsink with came with the 4800X2... it does its jobs... but at 7000rpm it sounds like a jet.

So basically I'm looking for a fantastic 939 heatsink/fan which cools really well and is reasonably quiet. I would prefer something that uses the standard clip mechanism or at least something fairly easy to fit.

Any suggestions?

I recommend this one (http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/Zalman-CNPS7700-AlCu-CPU-Cooler-p-16265.html) or the all-copper version of it (CNPS7700-Cu). It doesn't use the standard clips, but it is very easy to install.

I'd just go all the way and get the 9700LED

In fact that's what I use on my socket 939 4600x2.

The nice thing about that heatsink is it officially works with socket 775 AND AM2 as well.

arctic cooling freezer 64 pro is good on the cheap.

The zalman heatsinks worry me because of the size (weight and if they will fit).

I'd heard good things about the freezer 64 but wanted to go for something with a 120mm silent fan...

Have found some that I like the look of, but not sure they are any good:

ThermalTake Ultra 120, it's very big but is the best air cooler you can get
