My System Specs


let me rephrase my question since the guys @ NCIX are ignoring me:

I'm in the market for an aftermarket HSF for my AMD 5200+ because it idles at ~55-60 degrees according to Core Temp and ~45 w/ Everest. I was thinking of this heatsink, but are there any better ones for ~35 dollars? You see, i'm on a budget and i still need a cheap 120mm fan as an exhaust fan, which i'm buying from another dude on HWC for $5 (its a Zalman 1600rpm one).

At the price range, there is the Arctic Freezer 64 and and Xigmatek HDT-S963 and the Scythe Reeven.

I'm inclined toward the Reeven b/c it seems to cool the best, while the AC F64 has an incredible 6 YEAR warranty and their decent MX1 paste. But the Xigmatek heatsink seems to be quite old tho.
