    My current Thermaltake Volcano 7 Heatsink fan (CPU) has about had it, it turns on and off occasionally. So I was wondering what Thermaltake everyone recommends. I would like to keep the cost under $20 as I only paid that much for the Volcano 7. Here are my system specs:

    Athlon XP 1700
    512 MB RAM
    GeForce MX440 64 MB

    If you want to spend 20 bucks for a fan, then you'll probably just get one like the one that you already have ;)

    If you want a real CPU fan, check out the Zalmans :D

    You could also just look for a new fan that's the same size, your actual heatsink is fine, but the fan is giving you troubles, and they're easy to replace.

    Is this a Volcano 7, or a Volcano 7+?

    As a matter of fact you can actually buy a replacement fan for your Thermaltake Volcano 7. I think www.newegg.com carries them and they are cheaper than the whole unit as McTimson pointed out.
