I'm having a hard time finding a heatsink for my 64fx (oem). I bought the only one on newegg's site that was specifically listed as supporting socket 940, but I am concerned about installing it. The clip is bent too much and it will take WAY too much force to get it in place (and yes i have the lever open)
Anyway, after seeing this problem, I think I would just rather get a better quality heatsink anyway. Does anyone know of a website that has reviewed amd64/opteron heatsinks?

One more question: is the mounting bracket the same for socket 754 and socket 940? Can one use a heatsink listed for an Athlon64 on an opteron?

if you go here: AMD Thermal Solutions Guidelines' ">http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce..._869_9460^9515,00.html you can see a listing of heatsinks that work...

Thermaltake's Volcano 12 works
FoxConn has a few models
Ajijo has a model...
Zalman, etc.

cheers,

dave

thanks for the quick replies. Dave, do you know if the heat sink brackets are the same for both sockets? The pages dont really make that clear.

(The model I am having trouble with was on the list, I guess I got a bad one)

All the mountings for both sockets should be the same.

Most vendor's SHOULD include the backplate and bracket if the mobo vendor didn't.

FoxConn includes it (i believe), Ajijo doesn't (you have to specially request it), and I think thermaltake does.

My heatsinks should be arriving this week...

cheers,

dave

Coolermaster has only one HSF for A64/Opteron...doesn't look that great IMO, but i guess they'll make some more and better Heatsinks soon
Thermalright doesn't have A64/Opteron Heatsinks yet - i hope they'll release a nice one soon...i love my SLK-900U

EDIT: Here's' ">http://www.legitreviews.com/Reviews/ttvenus_1.shtml a review of the Thermaltake Venus 12 HSF

thermalright is one of the best hsf there is IMO. I have a slk800 and sk7 and like them both.
