So if you don't mind, please recommend some good CPU HSFs or just HSs. I have the stock AMD HSF on there right now but I'd like something to do the job a little better. Also, I have new parts coming in this week and I wanna overclock my CPU a little to get more juice outta it. Any suggestions?

Socket 939 right? Easy, arctic cooling freezer 64 pro. Cheap, quiet and HIGHLY effective. Kept my X2 3800 @ 2.4 at 31C idle.

Where have you been? I got my gaming rig back and I'm building it back up. Even though I still have both of my Macs (still going strong), I just wanted to build another PC and do a little gaming, mainly for Crysis, CSS and a few others.

stevemedes, thanks for the suggestion. The Freezer Pro looks great and I'll keep checking it out. I used to have a ThermalTake Venus 7 for my 3500+ (Qlitchford bought it I think) and it worked well. Thanks again!

+1. My brother's 939 system I built him is rocking one of those as well.

Awesome to hear a +1 on that. I'll prolly order that whenever I can confirm my Paypal money has hit my bank account. Thanks guys! BTW, I started a blog about updating my rig @ sixst0rm.blogspot.com (or click the link in my sig!).

Just wondering, I've been reading around the net and trying to see if this HSF is too big for the latest ASUS A8N-SLI mobo. I just don't wanna order it and then I can't put in my RAM lol.
