    the PC will be on 24/7

    would i get away with a heatsink and fan and disconnect the fan, so it would be passive cooling ?????

    what temps does the chip run at under full load with a hsf mate?

    if you get high readings then i wouldnt disconect the fan, tho it also depends on the air flow in the case, its it carp then the chances of running it with no fan are small

    He's just trying to help you out - we like a tidy forum, where possible

    As for the fan, have you thought about 7V modding it... it'll still be running, but a lot quieter. Of course, this depends on how hot the Duron runs and how good the heatsink is.

    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    If you want the ultimate silent heatsink and fan then the zalman 7000cu is your friend.
    Will set you back a fair bit though and probably won't fit on your motherboard but thats defeatist talk.
