I am currently running the Swiftech MCX heatsink with a 2000rpm fan to cool a Athlon 2400+. At default speed/voltage my idle is about 50/load 58 with ambient at 30. If I get a 120mm to 80mm fan adapter and a 100 cfm 120mm fan to put on the swiftech heatsink how much of a temperature drop should I expect? I want to know if it is worth it to get a 120mm fan on my cpu. Thanks for the advice.
Also, does anyone know if the Akasa Acoustic Absorption pad (http://www.casecooler.com/anakacabmat.html) works well? It is supposed to absorb the sound from fans/harddrives.
