I wanted to upgrade my retail HSF and I was looking on Ebay, I want the fan but the "mod" seems a little iffy. Will something like this actually make a difference??

The ducting mod does help somewhat but your better off just getting a better cooler like a Vantec Aeroflow or a Thermalright.

Thats true but your better off with a Aeroflow either way since it costs about the same and cools much better.

I'll get that because I DO plan on OCing just not yet. I want to get more comfortable with everything else first...

Thanks guys

dude dont get volcano 9, its so $hit compared to volcano 7 with all copper heatsink, it cools like 5c better then volcano 9.

I figured that out...I read some reviews after I posted this, I will be going with the Aeroflow.

that pc2700 should be able to hit around 185fsb easy, so dont try to make excuses for not overclocking
