If you've jumped on the Socket AM2 bandwagon and are looking to upgrade from AMD's stock CPU cooler, the crew at [H]Enthusiast have a round-up posted today that will be of interest. They take a look at a handful of AM2 compatible coolers from Scythe to Zalman, and two unit stood out from the rest.
"So you've got a new AM2 based machine and you want to keep it cool, but you don't know what heatsink to use? We didn't either, so we tested seven coolers from six different companies to find out. Rather than just show you a graph with a bunch of temperatures we also take into account ease of installation, perceived noise levels and price. This way you can make an informed decision about which heatsink is right for your application."
