    I recommend the Thermaltake Volcano 12. Adjustable speed, and great cooling. The only downside is noise, although it isn't that bad at lower speeds.

    Swapped the 3 blade fan on my Volcano 12 for a older Tt variable fan. The noise is nowhere near as intrusive, specially at low speeds. Used the Akasa AK824CU a couple of times as well which is a decent quality standard HSF.

    Any old HS will cool a wee 2100Xp. But try and get a decent HS so you can have a nice quiet and slow RPM fan.

    Get yourself a cheap and cheerful Thermalright SK-7 and a quiet papst 80mm fan.I used this on a 2500xp@3200 speeds and it kept my temps at 39c idle 48c full load.
    Now I'm using the SK-7 with a 120mm fan on a zalman fan bracket which i find is much better alll round.A bit ugly to look at but it shifts air all over the mobo.This keeps my 2500xp temps to around 43c idle 50c full load but i am running 1.7v through the cpu now whereas before it was at stock 1.65v.
