Default Athlon 64 stock heatsinks

I've been thinking a LOT about getting a Venice 3000+ and the Epox 9NDA3+ nFORCE3 Ultra board (I can't afford nFORCE4 or a PCIe graphics card at the moment) and was just wondering how the stock HSFs performed.

Does anyone even use them? Or do we all just get a 100% copper beast which allows for max OCing?

I have Clawhammer 3200+ and I use the stock heatsink and get the OC below. That's S754 so it's a little different from what you're getting but it does the job. Biggest problem i'd say is the fan is really loud.

I'm guessing that it it ships with the same aluminum heatsink my 1.8Ghz Newcastle had. Despite its low RPM I'm able to overclock to 9*250 (2250) without it ever breaking 51 degrees under full load! This is a newcastle too, I'm sure a 90nm processor like the Venice would really have some overclocking headroom.



EDIT: I found an overclocking review of the 3000+ venice. It does ship ship with a very similar cooler to the one my my 2800+.

Sweet...that's pretty nice to know. I would probably end up getting an extreme "performance" heatsink anyway because I'm a tool like that.

It's between an A64 system and a DVD-Recorder-based 1200W 5.1 home theater system. I'm going to get them both, it's just a question of which I get first. And if I wait on the computer system, getting PCIe will be easier as prices keep coming down. The home theater...I have to wait for Best Buy to have a sale.

With a 3000+ S754 at 2.5GHz the stock heatsink was good for 56c full load in a warm room. It has a copper Zalman heatsink on it now which peaks at 48c full load. I thought the stock heatsink did an admiral job but this computer is on 24/7 and I'd rather have sub 50c temperatures.

do you have a home theater now? if not, get that. if you do, go with the PC. actually, now that i think about it, go with the home theater, then save up and leap into PCIE (i finally did) and that way you are future proofed later on.

Nope, no Home Theater at the moment and the more I think about it, the more I want that right now. My current system, while not killer, it still holding up just fine so I can wait a few more months to upgrade.

agreed. as much as you guys see me as a computer guy... my heart is 100 times more into home theaters/car audio (but not all that subwoofer in the trunk crap )

home theater it is

These things come with a great heatsink. Im running with a 700Mhz overclock and prime 95 only makes my temps raise to the mid-50s... playing bf2 for hours on end only gets it to the 51-52C range. Keep in mind that its been 90+ degrees here, so itl most likely run a even cooler during the fall and winter.

I have to say im extremely impressed with this heatsink\fan

I just bought an X2 recently, they come with a half copper hs/f plus heatpipes! I was quite surprised. I didn't even use it though, just went to the XP-90.

More than that, I'm impressed with how cool the chip runs, too. I love AMD.

And Zoom, I know what you mean. We had one at the old apt. last year. It was only 600W, but it still rocked. That roommate and I no longer live together, so he's got it at his new place.

This one I want is 1200W of awesome. The subwoofer alone is 300W (each satelite and the center channel are 180W) and that is more than my entire Z-5300 computer system. I love it.

It's only $600, too. I'm going to wait until Best Buy has another 10% off (or more) all home theaters sale and snag it up then.
