  1. ok, i was thinking about getting a new cpu cooler cause the 1 on my cpu atm is loud and annoying, atm i just have the standard fan and heatsink that came with my cpu (amd athlon 3200+) i was looking around and i found some that are cheap cause i dont really want to be spending that much, maybe $20 - $50 australian, i dunno if its even gonna be worth changing if im only going to be payin that much. so here are my links if some1 could tell me the best out of these and any other info/advice would be good,

    thanks

    i personally dont think any of them look any good, which would be the main deciding factor for me, apart from actual performance. maybe u should look in TasPC b4 u buy one man.

    zalman coolers, particularly the 7x00 and 9500 series, are extremely quiet (often undetectable) and can handle the most demanding heat outputs.

    www.zalman.co.kr

    check them out before you make your decision.

    i imagine that stuff wouldn't taste too great-probably isn't too good for the old liver anyways.
