How many CFM does your panaflo pump out?

There's a nice forum actually dedicated to stuff like this. There is Cases and Cooling, CPU forum, etc... You'll probably get some good advise in one of those forums

I hate to be unhelpful, but if you're not overclocking I think the retail hsf does a great job and is quiet/efficient. If you bought oem though then nevermind, but if you bought a retail the hsf included is pretty good

Best heatsink: ThermalRight AX-7 with a low-speed Panaflo, Vantec Stealth or Papst 80mm fan on it.
Best cheap heatsink: SVC GC68 with a similar fan.

Also, the Alpha PAL8045 with the same fan is also a good choice, although this heatsink requires that you disassemble your motherboard etc to install it. Its a pain in the arse, but worth it. But I'd rather go for the AX-7.

Eh, you're kinda slow at taking hints, eh? No replies means nobody around here is interested. XZeroII came right out and said to take it to the proper forum! I like hardware questions as much as the next guy, but all those bumps sort of piss me off.
