There's no such thing as a quiet, performant 40mm fan. Even those from papst are unbearably loud.

After a while, you get tired of trying to cool a hot chip with expensive heatsinks, fan ducts and low rpm papst fans.

Solve the problem by eliminating the source: don't buy processors that consume +50W.

overclocking is about most bang for the buck in my humble opinion

what's the point in buying a cheap XP1700+ and using a 50+ heatsink to make it run like an XP2400+ that costs 50 more then the XP1700+.. catch my drift ?

overclocking has 2 categories
- the best bang for the buck
- als fast as possible / faster then the fastest cpu in the shop
