The fans AMD's ship with SUCK tho. I buy the OEM's w/o the fan & heatsink.
this is true, they will go out after about a year or so , but if u need advice dont get a real huge copper one unless it says quite. Unlike me ia couple years back i gota Thermaltake Volcano 7+ (edit: overclockers.com got upset at hotlink
) itll keep you cool but is pretty loud.
