Rear facing AM2 cooler

I am upgrading my processor to a X2 6000+ and I need a AM2 cooler that will blow air to the rear case fan and not at the power supply.

Any suggestions?

I killed a nforce 4 southbridge by running it hot for several months. I couldn't stand that teeny little whiny fan that asus liked to put on their socket 939 boards in those days.

How well does that Mine fit? I have (almost) the exact same processor (4000+) and mobo (690G) and I am looking to replace the stock cooler.

Neither, get a HD3650. Less power draw, less heat, and better image quality.

The GA-MA69G-S3H that I have, which is the full ATX version of the board you have, exhibits this same behavior. The Yate Loon 120mm I have hooked up runs at 1500(ish) rpm no matter what I do.

Something about motherboard fan control, it's highly specific to individual motherboard. I've used 8 AM2 boards, and they all came with different range & power on fan controlling. Some were able to fine-tune range of fan RPM, but some were just equipped with enable & disable function, and nothing e...

You might want to try one of those new Scythe fans, the Noctua's aren't exactly known to flow a lot of air.

I just built a rig for college with a X2 4000+, and the cooler is amazingly quiet. With both cores fully loaded with two instances of CPUburn, the proc stabilizes at 42C with the fan at around 2000 rpm. At that speed, there is a bit of motor noise, but its drowned out by the rest of my system (HX420...

Word on the street is that the newer 1 gig GDDR4 2900XT is pretty killer.

Like above 8800GTX level.

There is one benefit of going the 8600 route... it can decode HD DVDs in hardware, while the 8800 does not. Just something to consider if that matters to you. Seems to me all the cards out now have a shortcoming: - 8500/8600 not fast enough for games, and doesn't accelerate VC-1 video. - 8800 doesn...

That was what I was thinking. I would use it to cool a Pentium M or a low powered Core Duo or something. Looks too tall for a HTPC though.

Hardly surprising with that 128-bit bus.
Didn't nVidia do the same thing with the 8600GT?

Why either of these companies do this is beyond me.
