As the title and description say, I'm looking for a good heatsink and fan for an Athlon 64 3500+, that will fit on a s939 Asus a8v.
Preferably heatpipe.. and within a price range of 70 dollars, tops...
thanks in advance.

Here, newegg's got the swiftech hsf's cheaper. After oc'ing with a swiftech heatsink, I will never use anything else.

The value one with a fan.

what temps does that get you at, and why do they still use alum. pins for their hsf's?

That is the HSF I just bought yesterday (Zalman). I'm looking to get the 3500+ 90nm setup myself soon when the PCI-e boards are released. Looked to be as one of the best in its class and easier to setup than the Heatpipe HSF's and get around the same temps. But here is a review with the top 3 Heatpipe HSF's and their bench's with other HSF's.

Actualy, its for my friends computer (he's buying it, not me). I'm too broke to build a new one.. lol.. let alone spend 70 bucks on a hsf....

that swifty cooler is awesome. it keeps my 3200+ (2.475 GHZ, 1.55 volts) at around 48C full load. my only problem with it is the price tag . the factory base job on it is flawless. I put on the specified amount of AS5 and nearly all of it got squished to the edges, and when i removed it, the seal was so good that some of it got suctioned back in. its all around a really nice HS. As for a fan, get a good high-RPM capable 80mm fan for it.

I use a Thermaltake Silentboost K8 that fits a socket 939 set-up as easy as pie. The thing's stable, really takes the heat off the chip and is so quiet that my 2 Raptors are louder than they are... I can't recommend a cooler and fan any higher...

That's funny, My stock fan does that during gaming and it came with the CPU.
