ALPHA P7125 vs. GlobalWin FKK32 Coolers

"Overclocking to increase the lifespan of their lowly processors..."

For quite some time now the hardcore gamer/hardware enthusiasts of the world have been looking to Overclocking to increase the lifespan of their lowly processors, and get more bang for their buck. Unfortunately, Overclocking is not that easy, and usually cannot be accomplished by using the stock heatsink/fan combo that comes with most processors.

So, now you are all hyped up on overclocking you new Athlon 500, you have taken off the old stock heatsink/fan combo and are ready to go. Now comes the problem. What fan/heatsink combo do you buy?

Second, the cooler now uses a copper base plate which translates into better cooler performance overall.
