I'm thinking of installing an xp2100 t-bred into my soltek drv5 mobo. My fsb can be set to 166 so that I can run this chip up to 2000+. I do not have a lot of room for a hsf because of the psu. My current hsf is amd stock, fits fine, but I'll need something a bit more rigorous for the t-bred if I run it at 2000+. I was looking at a vantec aeroflow, but the heatsink is 70mm by 70mm, and that is too big given my psu. I'm guessing I'll need a heat sink no larger that 60mm square. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

If you don't mind noise, I will suggest the Vantec 6035D all copper HSF. The fan is a bit annoying, but you could always throw on a quieter fan.

Or, if you have a CompUSA near you, they sell a replica of the 6035D called the ProGamer. It too, is an all copper unit with a much quieter fan. I have used three of these on various speed systems and they do a satisfactory job. I would suggest that you lap the base before installation.
