I'll be ordering my new CPU (either a 35 watt 2200+, a 45 watt 2400+ or a 35 watt 2400+) probably this coming week, and while my current cooling setup is great, I"m going to need another HSF for when I give my CPU to my mother and sister. I'm considering either of these:

http://www.newegg.com/app/View...esc....-110-006&depa=0' ">http://www.newegg.com/app/View...tion=35-110-006&depa=0

or this:

http://www.newegg.com/app/View...esc....-114-011&depa=0' ">http://www.newegg.com/app/View...tion=35-114-011&depa=0

Note that I'll be lapping them (if needed) and I'll pull the fan it comes with and use my 60mm to 80mm adapter and a 35CFM Antec 80mm fanI have. I'll also be pulling any TIM pad and using AS5.

I've seen both of these in action and am impressed with both, but I'd like tog et some input on these.

Any input on either of them?

They will both more than likely do the job for you. The taller one may fair a bit better than the small one, the smaller of the 2 look like it's for a 1U chasis or similar application.

If you plan on doing some serious overclocking, this one will not dissapoint you.

Put a 92mm fan on top of that and you could easily do 2.6 to 2.7GHz on air, although it might get a bit loud.

But, if the price is too much for you, go with the vantec one. Also, for the processor, get the 35W 2400. Best overclocking bang for your buck.

Yeah, Aubrey runs that one on his XP-M 2500+, and he lives in Texas, so I know it's a good heatsink. I live in central New Mexico, where it's frikken hot most of the year, (odd cold front here now though) so I have to take ambient temps into consideration. Problem is it's out of my budget ATM, maybe in a month or so, but for right now, I think I'll go with the vantec.
