Default AMD Athlon XP 2000+ Palomino & Cooling

Hi All

I presently have the original heatsink & fan on my ASUS A7N8X-X Slot A (462) motherboard. Does anyone have any suggestions on what else I could use for cooling? Present temp is 44C, mainboard is 29C and hard drive is 34C.

My System Specs


Thermalrights slk800/900 were champs, with a 92mm tornado fan they rocked. But IDK if you can find one nowadays maybe ebay. Or the for sale/ WTB sections

Go water. lots of people are always trying to get rid of old water cooling stuff. D4 pumps, Swiftech MCW6000 blocks and heatercore radiators couldn't be cheaper. Check any BST you know of.
