    hey i recently got a AMD 3800 x2 cpu along with my new rig i built. i am wondering if there are any REAL good cpu heatsink coolers i can get to overclock it to mabey about 2.4-2.7 ghz. i would liek the heatsink to be all copper for best results. Also i would like to get a Good cooler for my new x1800 xt. on default clocks i can only get grand theft auto san andreas to play for about 30 min unless i go into atitool and crank up the fan from the default 30% to about 50-70%. Any good coolers for this specific graphics card? The reason im not sure is because it seems as though the x11800 xt already has a great cooler on it. but i would like to overclock it to about 750/800-850 stable. is that even posible :confused: ? well anyway somewhere around those clocks.

    my x1800xt used to run 750/850 stable no artifacts but now it wont run thay high. Im thinking if i put my zalman vf700 copper on there the thing will let me run 750/850 stable again.
    zalman vf700 will work with the x1800xt.

    You should buy a scythe ninja cooler and mount on a silent 120mm fan. It keeps my x2 3800+@2.5ghz under 40c at load! Case temp at around 29c during load. I'm getting my x1800xt 512mb in a few days, but I'm going to use stock cooling I think...

    For your CPU, look at this cooler.
    Zalman CNPS9500 LED Copper CPU Heat Sink 92MM Fan 1350-2600RPM
    18-27.5DBA W/Blue LED
    http://www.zalman.co.kr/eng/product/view.asp?idx=165&code=005009

    Point it to either your upper rear or
    blowhole fan.
    Not only cools the CPU but assists the airflow
    for the case.
    Many other solutions blow air in directions that just cause
    turbulence and interfere with the flow of air through the case.

    Happy trailz,
