Just picked up a Radeon 9600 and it has a heatsink but no fan. Since I plan on overclocking, can anyone recommend a aftermarket heatsink/fan combo ?

Anyone overclocking without ?

I've read some OC's on the 9600 pro where they acheive 275 more points in each category.... I will enver get near that much but I'm at 450 core, 335 ram right now.

Trev- here's the heatsink I ordered yesterday:

It's a Vantec Iceberq4 CCB-A4C Chip Cooler. Vantec's website says it does work with the 9600's.

What's the stock settings on the 9600 anyway ? I won't get mine installed until this weekend. You have the a different 9600 model so they probably wouldn't be the same.

Does the pro model come with a fan installed or just the heat sink ?

My pro comes with a fan/heatsink

YOS the 9600 pros overclock very well actually. Do a google on 9600 pro overclocking .... lots of articles.

I was thinking of getting that orb one that I think extreme posted above.

Oh my bad YoS your talking about the 9600 np ...

I have this awful habit of not reading messages completely.
