^So it's as i said - Socket AM2/AM2+ falls into 940 specs. BTW : here's how my non-oc'ed system handles in 3DMark Vantage :

Notice how my CPU scores, plus fastest system is using Performance & mine is, supposed to be H-something or High with a tweaks. Green is mine, red is the fastest. Watch how i'll score with 3.2 or 3.4GHz clock. The 3DMark i have is Advanced (19.95$, thru @mail, not CD-ROM), with 1.0.1 hotfix. Say what u think so far.

Yes dude, those taxes are way over the top. What can i say : welcome to Israel. :lol: You definitely don't want to know what happens in this country this year financially & at large. Back to heatsinks stuff/topic. Couldn't find Xigma today (was too busy @ work - plasma/LCD/HDTV warehouse :)), so i'll try to find out tomorrow or in Friday. What is the best from this firm : HDT-S1284, HDT-D1284 or HDT-S963 ? Hope to find & order one here. Got to see how silent those are in my case (Armor+).

In order, the standing one, the one tat blows down, then the 92mm one. But since you cant use the standing one since it would block your ram slots I would say go for the blowing down one.

So, I just got my panaflo fan for this xigmatek. Man, 3-4* lower temps setting the fan to 7v. When I ramp it up to 12v I get 6-7* lower temps at load. This thing rocks.

I wasn't here for few days, so here's the news : til 10th in January (salary day + Christmas :)) i can't obviusly get this mother (i am definite now that i still purchase Xigma's S1284 & if not V8), so til then i can tell : Kow_ciller, Oblivious, Apollo & other participants of this thread you were great help, i'll make sure that til i get mature in overclocking (hopefully soon) i'll ask for your directions, from time to time. Thanx & you can bet that soon i'll post some pics & results of my New Year 3.4/3.5GHz overclock. :rock:
