well recently a few ppl hav persuaded me into buying a turion instead of a mobile clawhammer for my next system(thansk again). i had originally planned on getting an XP120 to keep it cool. now im nto so sure, since mobile CPU's use the lidless design and i dont want to damamge the chip.

i read somehwere that the zalman coollers feature screws where u can tighten it, instead of the bracket, so itd b easier with a mobile CPU. that, combined with awsom reviews about the zalmans, has me thinkin of gettin this.' ">http://www.newegg.com/Product/...p?Item=N82E16835118115 heck, its even cheaper then the XP120.

wat say u? /tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' />

ha wel thanks guys

mobiles:

1. less power, less voltage
2. less heat, yeilding one less problem when OCin

and am i right, do the zalmans feature screws? that might b easier then fiddlin with the XP120 bracket....

Take a look at swiftech's heatsinks' ">http://www.newegg.com/Product/...p?Item=N82E16835108037. They use screws and I have yet to find a bad review on one. I have the mcx6400-v on my winchester and I can pump 1.6V into it with that heatsink keeping things cool.
