its very easy to go over kill with the cooling. check out www.overclockers.co.nz i like the alpha but beware many of the large heatsinks wont fit some boards.

if you want a better idea of whats suited to your set up some details are required.

what cpu? is it overclocked?
how many fans has the power supply got?
how many case fans? front? rear?
what heatsink/fan do you have a present and how hot is it getting? what is the case temp?

AMD Athlon 1Ghz, not over clocked, 1 PSU fan, 1 frt fan but am going to buy new case with 2 frt & 1 bck, don't know current heatsink/fan, 45 degrees c

40 to 45 c is standard temp fot the AMD cpus and mine has hit 70 c when flat out so dont worry too much. they self destruct at over 90 c by the way.
