I need a good HSF to go on my new Abit NF7-S2.
I won't be overclocking the system, but I need it to be cool and small enough to fit around the capacitors on the NF7. Any suggestions?

Yea, that's the HSF I ordered...way too big. I could get some epoxy and stick it on, but I would be scared of it falling off and crashing into my poor video card, as the thing is heavy.

Wasteful if he's not overclocked.. ah, and it's thermalright, not thermaltake. :p

Get a Speeze WhisperRock II. They cool exceptionally well at a GREAT price; <$10.

Don't get a SilentBoost.. they suck for the price. Read my above post. ;)

Newegg is failing me, first no good Thermalright stuff and now I can't find speeze :(

Edit: Yeah, i found nothing called speeze on any of the sites I went to...got a link?

Edit numero two: Hey cool, found it under the brandname masscool, just wondering how quiet it is compared to the other parts in your tower.

The Speeze/Masscool HSF seems to be decently quiet considering how much air it says it pushes. Considering you're not overclocking it probably will be more than enough :). As for the Zalman, you don't attach it to Socket A systems using epoxy, it bolts onto the motherboard using a backplate :p. Zalman's site says that the 7000B is incompatible with any NF7 board; are there any members here with a 7000B-AlCu and a NF7-S?

I had a Speeze (now named masscool, same thing ;)) all copper HSF on my P4 before I got this and it was very quiet @ 5000 RPMs and it pushed very good air.. it kept my CPU very cool aswell. about 32C idle and about 46C load, all for $12. :) Replaced it because I accidentally stuck my screwderiver in the fan while it was running and broke about 3 blades and couldn't find a fan of that size to replace it with. Had ghetto rigged a fan on there, but I couldn't stand the ugliness. ;)

I totally recommend it, you won't be disappointed. Masscool even has a line of Socket A HSFs in the $10 range that have LED fans, for an extra mod touch. They also have copper inserts for better heat conductivity.. for $10 you can't beat em.

That sucks, I was planning on getting one to help quiet down my PC but it looks like I'll have to wait to get one until I upgrade to an Athlon 64 :(. Good thing I found out now before I ordered it. What kind of modding does it require?

Is the outer screwhole needed for Athlon 64 systems? If not then I may go ahead and mod it if/when I get it.

From what it says on page 7, it uses the outer holes when being used on an Athlon 64 system. Since I would be carrying the heatsink over to the new system, I'll just have to wait until I upgrade. Doing the mod would make it unusable on an A64 system :(.
