    Cooltek Auras92 - will it fit Socket A?

    My pc is starting to hit 57 under full load with a stock fan (used to stay at 51, but maybe cos its warm now). I am guessing part of the problem may be the thermal paste getting old... Anyway. It's a barton 2500 and it starts to reboot when hot. So I am thinking of fitting a decent cooler on it (even though I'll be getting new pc soon).

    Anyhow, the Cooltek Auras92 seems like a very nice bit of kit - am just not sure if i can clamp it onto my asus a7n8x deluxe (socket A). Had no luck finding out on google so far. It mentions socket 478 and I am not sure if the fitting on that is compatible with Socket A. I.e. whether the socket A has been omitted from description coz its old or because it isn't compatible. If anyone has one of these please let me know or suggest a similarly priced alternative (want it to be quite quiet and better than stock cooler).

    Cheers.

    I've got the thermalright SI-97 strapped to the top of my barton, keeping it at 40C full load with a silverstone fan on its lowest setting - so a pretty potent performer. Its easy to install, and accepts 80 or 92mm fans, so gives some flexibility. Twinned with a low noise panaflow they are one of the most effective (and quiet) SoA heatsinks available

    Fitted this on a couple of xp machines. Has an 8cm fan and is cheap. Also has a pci blanking plate with a fan controller. I can't quite remember what temperatures it yielded but it certainly cooled a thoroughbred b 2600+ very effectively on the lowest setting which was pretty much inaudible. This was in a poorly ventilated case with no case fans and a crappy cheap psu that is on its last legs. Might be worth a shot.

    As for the heatsink you've just posted, if it doesn't mention socket A it probably doesn't support it as the mounting mechanism is a bit different although I could be wrong.

    I don't think the Cooltek will fit - it looks a bit like a Arctic Freezer 64 to me?

    I know a bit long in the tooth but why not a Thermalright SLK800? Tekheads (£8.86) and Thecoolingshop.com (£11.74) (both plus delivery) are selling them.
