I recently bought a new processor for my PC. It's working OK now - but my PC keeps resetting itself. I've discovered that this is because my CPU is getting too hot - 80 degrees C when I last checked.

So, I need a few fan for a AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 2.2 GHz 1M L2 Socket 754.

This one! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AMD-Athlon-64-3400-2...A1%7C240%3A1318

But there are so many and I have no idea which to buy. Obviously, I want a fan which produces, really, really, REALLY COLD AIR so that my CPU can chill out.

If someone could recommend the best one for this particular CPU, I'd be really grateful.



PS The fan on at the moment is a standard AMD one. Thanks.
