I have an aging Athlon 800 with a stock heat sink/fan that I'd like to quiet down. (Thanks again for the tips on the PSU forum!) Obviously the highest recommended HS on the list in that category is the Thermalright SLK-800. Given that it's rated for 2000+ CPUs, I'm assuming this would be overkill in my machine. Am I still better off going with this and a Panaflo fan (it doesn't come with a fan, right?), or would I be better off with a different CPU cooling solution?

slothdog,

I have an athlon 1.2, I did a little research and found the Thermalright sk-7
with fan for under $25 at www.sidewindercomputers.com.
They shipped that day and I had it in two days. The HS works pretty well and it's cheaper then the 800. My athlon runs about 127 - 130 f on full load.
I would do a little research and I think for the money it's a good HS and if you upgrade your cpu the HS will still work with the fastest Athlons
