Hello :)
I have found a site with the same mobo as ive just got and the same cpu, to make things better they are overclocking the cpu from stock 2.2Ghz to 2.8Ghz using a hsf( Thermalright) (2.2 to 3.22 using subzero cooling) Athlon64 3700+ Overclocking Fun. Im thinking 2.6Ghz is sufficient.
So my question is what would be the best hsf for me heres a couple from the online shop i use the most.
1. Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu LED
2. Gigabyte G-Power Pro GH-PDU21-MF
3. Thermalright XP-120 Heatsink + Maybe Evercool 120mm Blue LED Fan or SilenX 120mm Blue LED Fan 14dBA

looking forward to some ideas

The stock one should do fine, otherwise IF it will fit the the xp-120 is the best choice.

I found this page XP-120 A64 / A64FX Motherboard Compatibility Information and my mobo happens to be one that does not go the best with this hs :tazz:

Also on the DFI page that has specs tells me my mobo supports DDR266, DDR333 and DDR400 DDR SDRAM DIMM, ok and the link on the same page for this mobo is a list of ram best used in overclocking have a look here it even shows and tells me at the top this page is for my mobo so now im confused :tazz:

I had my eye set on these for next week these Corsair's

That is good ram, you know there isnt much point in overclocking at the moment you have enough power to run anything out there very quickly, i dont even need to overclock and i have a slower cpu than you do, that cpu and that ram as they are will be very very fast.
I would get your ram and leave it for a while a year or two down the line you might want to overclock but for now i wouldnt risk your shiny new machine for uneeded power.
