    Anyone know of a heatsink that is similar in dimensions to the stock AMD heatpipe heatsink, but performs better and has a larger fan?

    Thanks.

    I haven't found one that will connect to the AMD stock bracket. Most of the heat sinks require removing the motherboard and installing the mounting bracket supplied with the heatsink. You will also have to make sure that a new heatsink/fan will fit into your case. Hyper 212+ or the Hyper 212+ EVO are common ones used that are inexpensive.
    I'm not familiar with purchasing in England but use this link for reference.

    Liquid cooling is a no go.

    Mounting another bracket isen't a problem.

    That heatsinks to big, I mentioned the Stock AMD heatsink as only one about that big will fit in the small case.

    Its going to be used for a Phenom II 955 by the way.

    I don't have any personal experience with the small heatsinks. Are you planning to overclock? If so you may want to look into a larger case with fans to get more airflow.
