While I'm waiting for my Athlon Barton XP 3200+ to arrive, I'm looking for a good cooler for it.

I've been looking at a Zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu and it seems to be a good choice, but is it?

The processor will be running 24/7 at 100% load. The case has three fans (front, side, back), the power suplly has two fans (bottum, back), two harddrives has cobber cooling ribs.

Yeah it does That's why it cought my attention

My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro (Rev. 2.0) - it's mentioned in the MB-compatibility-list as incompatible. This actually seems fait enough, considering it might collide with the cooling thing on the AGP-chip.

So I decided to try one out from Gigabyte: GH-PCU21-VG (3D Cooler-Pro) http://www.giga-byte.com/Perip...rodu...Cooler-Pro).htm' ">http://www.giga-byte.com/Perip...G(3D%20Cooler-Pro).htm

I was looking for another one from Zalman at first, and found the CNPS6000-Cu to be compatible http://www.zalmanusa.com/usa/p...iew....idx=33&code=005' ">http://www.zalmanusa.com/usa/p...ew.asp?idx=33&code=005 - but that one is apparently not available in Denmark.

The Zalman heatsinkers really does look impressive

my giga byte board made an effort to keep space clear around the CPU but even so its very tight. is there a area around the socket with some dimension silscreen in? that should help you find the right fit.

What is "dimension silscreen"? (maybe a silly question)

i use this cooler with an asus a7n8x board and it's great, no noise at all.

it runs 10c cooler than the thermaltake volcano 11 i used to use (which made more noice than my fridge!!

"silscreen" I meant SILK SCREENED, the printing and artwork printed on the board. sometimes it tells you how many milimeters of space is on each side of the socket. of course some haetsinks don't have straight sides, and widen toward their tops. that can be a problem.

oh, ok It says 8mm. And the first Zalman is very wide just a few milimeters above the cpu. The GigaByte heatsink only just fitted - with this one there wasn't any problems with the passiv agp chip heatsink, but another component on the board was only just missed. But I was able to install it.

Now I only need some ram for the board, to check out if things are working
