hey guys, i'm new here, and trying to quiet my system. i already replaced a noisy case fan, and that was so satisfying i'm moving onto the cpu heatsink. (the PSU is loud, but not as an annoying noise as the screaming little stock fan makes.)
except i have an asus a7a266, and i'm not sure what heatsinks will fit. (the socket is oriented in a different direction than most, and it's got two close capacitors.) i *know* that the ax-7 fits, but it's been conveniently discontinued.
will the sk-7 fit? i like it because it's cheap, but thermalright's website doesn't make it clear what the base measurements are. thanks.
also, i being in college my comp gets moved around a bit. is this heatsink too heavy?
here's a pic of my (dusty) mobo:
