    Air cooler for AM2?

    OK I'm Bored! and when I'm bored I start trying to o'clock!

    I have an AM2 4200 but with the standard cooler, which starts to get a little too warm for my liking when I start to wind the clock up!

    What might be a good modern cooler for AM2? I had a look arround but there doesn't seem to be anything obviously "new" from when I clocked my 939 system!

    Or... Well the reason I'm bored is we are in the process of emigrating to Australia, and my wife is already there...I'm just waiting for the house to sell! so given that my PC is going to be in much higher ambient temps I wonder if I might be better of looking at some sort of watercooling set up? possibly one of the kits, as I have no previous knowledge of watercooling.

    I dont think I would get a phase change set up past the "exchequer" she may be 12000 miles away...but she'd know!

    So, anybody got any comments or suggestions?

    I think so, always comes top of air cooler tests, but I don't recall ever seeing an NT06 reviewed

    Especially as we are going to Cairns, far north queensland....the hot tropical bit!

    but somehow I think.."but I've got to have the aircon on 24/7 to keep my computer cool" is just going to earn me a slap!
