    ya they are far and few between, most of the coolers out there you would have to create a custom bracket for the hole mounted and clip on coolers.

    looks like the 101 JR is going to be my only choice for the Barton and for the Sempron I haven't a clue... maybe use the stock cooler (with the copper core)

    there is the database for OCs, I think I may have found the combo i need, 200x12.5 1.9 Vcore, just need to test it under XP environment with Proper drivers. BTW COD4 is very good indication of OC Stability

    i am going to try that myself when i get a better heatsink for my barton. I use OCCT linpack to test mine is that the best way to test Socket A rigs? I know its one of the best for the new rigs

    OCCT is known test, Prime95, Super PI, 3D M01-06. I also did a system analysis my Machines Composite score with the CPU increased from 3.6 to 3.9 with the Multiplier OC.

    cooltechpc lists a Nexus AXP 3200 cpu cooler. Anyone have one of these ? If so, is it worth buying ?

    Solid copper base should work great for a Socket A cooler :)

    ya my system BSOD with a 8e in BF2 under 2.3GHz (200x11.5) on my AXP-M 2500+, had the VCore at 1.675 even for precaution. Had to drop it back to 2.2GHz

    that could be possible. With mine i had some ramsinks on the VRMs with a 80mm fan over them and on the NB i replaced the TIM with MX-2 and put a 60mm fan blowing on it. To make it run even cooler i had alittle heatsink laying around that fit perfect on the SB it all of the "hot spots" got cooled...(sadly i was stupid and put too much force on the heatsink and killed board and crushed CPU)

    Ya i killed a Perfectly good Unlocked 3200+ by slightly bending the Processor clip more so it would create more force. Thats why i have the 2500+ M, I also have a Spare Desktop 2500+, one day i will tweak this machine to the max, but for now money needs to go towards the Mega machine that is on the Phenom 2 OC club.

    Well guys I have finally got rid of all my socket A stuff.
    My system spec is changing for the first time in ages and the Socket A User Club sigbar will be disappearing forever.

    Farewell Socket A and the glory days of AMD!

    Here's the sigbar one last time:

    Peace out Socket A Club

    Im really thinking of ditching the Nvidia Board for a Via based board cuz of driver issues in win 7 for the NV part. Screw NV n their quick removal of compatibility
