building a new PC, and need suggestions on a heatsink


I am building a new computer, and im a little short on space. It's being built in an aluminum tool case . I have dual 80 mm Antec smart fans to cool the mobo, and im thinking of putting in another one just to circulate the air. But, i am not sure of a good heatsink/cooler fan for my processor. The proccessor is an AMD Athlon XP 1600 (socket A). Any input is greatly appreciated.

Swiftech, makes really good heat sink fans. They are a little higher priced than others, however they deliver more cooling power, which makes that AMD processor happy.

Also check out Tom's Hardware Guide. They usually have some great reviews of various products and you can see for yourself which are the best. Swiftech, btw, are one of the best out there.

Make sure you got equal amount of air coming in and going out or else it would cause negative airflow. Wouldn't matter then how many fans you got in there. Artic silverIII will help heaps in cooling the monster down too or you could always get those white thermal compounds if Artic silver is over your budget.

Swiftech is great but they are a bit costly. Globalwin makes decent heatsinks though. Another thing to consider is the noise factor. 7800rpm delta fans are sure good for cooling but the amount of vibration and noise they produce it would give me a headache.

Does the job well, not to loud, and easy on the wallet. Man, if it only did my laundry I would be set

If you want some really good advice on cooling, check out the Anandtech forums. One of the best resources out there.

The "hottest" heatsink at the moment is the Thermalright AX-7 .
You didn't mention what motherboard you're using and you will need to check it for compatability with your motherboard, as it is big. I personally use an Alpha Pal 8045 and a Thermalright SK-6. Both do excellent jobs and I'm running both with XP1600's on an Abit KR7a raid and Epox 8K7A+ motherboards.
