Default AfterMarket Cooling

i plan on buying a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane. nothing specail but it over clocks really well. i know of a guy who has it stable at 3.0ghz(got a screenshot at 3.405!!) which a windsor core 3.0ghz actual rates at 6000+(has more cache tho)
i plan on hevaily over clocking this CPU to save a buck but i cant find a cooler i want for it. water cooling is too expensive and have a budget 0$(you could give me one :P) to about 45$
any suggestions

Value cooler, only $20, but still excellent performance:

If you want anything better, you'll probably have to bump up your budget to about $50

The second one got some bad reviews, but that's only about the socket LGA 775 mounting system. The AM2 mounting should be fine.

Get the Zalman that freestyler posted. It uses copper rather than aluminum and Zalmans are a good known brand. If you want to meet your 45 dollar budget you could try ebay. I got this, usually 70 bucks, for only 25 on ebay. My temps dropped 10 degrees-- no joke.

edit: 10 degrees celcius*

They are a bit out of your budget, but the Sunbeam Tuniq Tower 120 would be your best bet if you can find one. Otherwise, the Zalman 9700 would be another excellent choice.

The Tuniq Tower does NOT support AM2 processors! DO NOT GET IT!!!
Quote:
# Compatibility:

* Intel
o Pentium 4
o Pentium 4 Prescott
o Socket 478
o LGA775
* AMD:
o Athlon 64
o Opteron
o K8
o Socket 754
o Socket 939
o Socket 940
Xoxide is an excellent site, I got my Tuniq Tower for my Core 2 Duo there, it's no newegg, but they're good.

How is Tuniq Tower 120 compatible with AMD Socket AM2 CPU?


Website: Tunig Tower 120. The thing looks pretty cool.

Ah, well I knew that the one I got didn't have an attachment for AM2 motherboards AFAIK, so I figured it wasn't compatible.

And the Tuniq Tower is amazing. Temps stay below 40C under load with my E6600 OCed to 3 GHz. If you're case is tight on space though, you might not want to get it, this thing is HUGE!
