    It depends! What are your temps like now? Are you going to be doing any serious overclocking?

    My Temps At The Moment Are 41C (Just Finished A Game Of Q3A) With A Duron 750@900.
    My Load Temp Is 45C And Idle About 37C.
    I Am Going To Add A 92mm Blowhole And Side-Intake To My Case As Well.
    Probably Will Do Some Moderate Overclocking.

    ATM, those temps aren't too bad, but with the Athlon XP things may well change. It could be worth trying your current HSF to see how it performs. If things don't go so well or you are overly concerned, it would definitely be worth getting either an Alpha Pal8045 or a Taisol 760, especially if you want to push that baby!;)

    Cheers jamiesurfs,
    I'll Try My Thermoengine First Then Get An Alpha 8045 If The Temps Are Too High For Comfort.
