    Default P4 Fan/Heatsink recommendations?

    I'm thinking of trying to extend the life of my current p4 2.4c system by getting a p4 3.0e (oem) and a fan/heatsink combo. Anyone have any recommendations? I'm not overclocking it, if that helps.

    I'm thinking of getting this one:

    I would get a 3.0C
    My wife has has my old 3.0C now,after I "upgraded" to a 3.2E my case temps
    climbed 10C and my old PSU would not even boot.

    the 1mb of L2 on the 3.2E is not that much different from the 512kb L2 on
    the 3.0C, reason being, increased L1 pipeline lenth.
    Not sure if your a gamer or not,but in games, the 3.0C kicks the snot out of
    the 3.2E
    Now the Presscott was a beast with apps and multitasking.
    The Northwoods were always good overclockers too,Presscotts just suck
    more juice
    Northwoods run alot cooler then the Presscotts ,so pretty much anything would work on the Northwood,as for a Presscott? I would either go with a
    Zalman or a Thermalright XP-90,
    just make sure you have clearence for them

    XP-90, SI-120 or SI-128
    None of the above need more than 50cfm. The SI sinks send cooling air to the RAM and FETs/caps between the CPU & I/O plate. I like the SI sinks
    Worth a good looking over. http://www.badcaps.net/

    Hey Master,
    What chipset are you running? 865PE-875P are a good match for either of those CPU's
    Out of personal preference, I think the 875P, running PC-3200 at least
    will activate PAT
    But I'm sure with you running that 2.4C,
    your also running 400mhz ram{I hope for your sake or it won't be an upgrade}

    Thermalright XP90 with a yate loon D12SL12 120mm fan. Yes, you can mount a 120 onto an xp90. Use the 80mm fan clips on the upper set of holes.

    I just installed an X-Wind Copper on my AMD939 setup and its performing better than my generic WC setup does. Its similar to the Zalman other than the fan lays down instead of standing up. Works great in my MicroFly case as well.

    I run hi 30's to low 40's.

    That Zalman consistently wins almost all comparos, especially when you factor in how quiet it is.

    Zalman all the way!

    And you can move it to your next rig..
