cooling fan for 2500+

Postby grunt » Fri Apr 30, 2004 10:37 am

I am looking into getting a 2500+ and was wondering if there was any physical size difference between my 3200+ and the 2500+. I have a aero7 cooler on it and wanted to use that one on my 2500+ if I get it. If not what is another good hs/fan to use when I overclock it?

There is no phisical size difference. I like and use the thermalright SLK-800U on my 2500+ mobile. if you are realy into overclocking then i recomend the 2500+M over the standard 2500+ it runs at 1.45v rather than 1.65v. this gives you more headroom for voltage and heat. some people have been getting as high as 2.8ghz on air with the 2500+m. if you want a known good safe and dependable overclock then go with the regular 2500+ that and its $25 less than the mobile.

Spire fans are said to be good. And socket A fans suit all AMD socket A processors ;) The newer K8 line is not in that I think.

Actually not all AMD coolers are for the same processors they are rated for speeds, Thermalright OCZ and Thermaltake each make good coolers.

Yeah, I should have been clearer. By "suit" I meant "fit physically". Sorry.

My usual recommendation is Thermalright SLK-900 and above range or SP-97 depending on your budget.

Swiftech is also good contender for Thermalrights HSF with their MCX-462V. (The HSF which got replaced by my water rig)
