    right well, bascially i have a motherboard (jetway A210gdms) that has no metal backplate included with it, so my lovely xp90c heastink is useless atm :rolleyes:

    What im looking for is a decent heastink to cool my 148 opteron that comes with a metal backplate, or else a crappy one that i can steal the backplate from to use with my xp90c. Any suggestions guys? :D

    Scythe Ninja - will even cool it passively
    Or shove a low-rpm 120mm fan on it and have the best of both worlds :)

    the problem i have atm is height. I'm currently using a silverstom ssc-lc03

    I dont have a lot of height to play with. some of those 'sinks are taller than 120mm which wouldnt literally leave about 1/2cm gap between the sink and the case lol

    wont have a chance in hell of cooling a 2.9ghz opty passively lol
