Default Getting a new heatsink/fan for a laptop

Ok, so i have an HP ze4200 series laptop that Im gutting and putting into a different case. (the LCD broke). I dont want to use the standard heat pipe/fan that it has now, I want to install a big heatsink/fan on it. This computer will be used as a server/media center, so i want it to be really quiet, hence the large heatsink idea.

What kind of a heatsink can I use here?

Here are some pics of it:

The Heatpipe

The Processor - Celeron 1.6Ghz, thats all i know..... must be a mobile, judging by the size of it

The 3 heatsink srewholes

Bottom of the heatpipe

The arrows are for the screwholes. rough estimate of the height of them over the processor

thanks for any suggestions

hmmm...... I have never experience a question like this. I have also never known anyone ballsy enough to gut a laptop and transfer it and then also want to put on a new HSF. Good work.

I dont think you could really FIT a new HSF in there, since it is a laptop. The heatpipe system is specially configured to fit in there nice and swell. Possible a little water cooling setup would be nice. Have the house run out the back into a sperate enclosure where you house the pump, radiator, and resevoir. Just an idea. Or you could just get one of those laptop chill pads, they are suppose to work pretty well.
