Well, Im actually looking to get this Heatsink and Fan. Seems like a good choice.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185121

Anyone know anything about this particular heatsink and fan, and then the brand?

No, Scythe makes VERY good heatsinks, but that is not one of them. Get the Scythe ninja, it's actually cheaper, and it cools way better, and it is on par with the big typhoon. here it is:

one thing, you will have to get a fan to go with it, because it dosn't come with one, I recommend this one:

What do you think of that one person's review? He said it brought his temp 40-60 degrees.

Which one? It dosn't shine until you get a fan to go with it.

For the one I posted.

Ok, maybe I will go with that one, once Newegg straightens its problems out. First I cant get on their website, and now the shopping cart wont work.

Yeah... newegg is being a bit sluggish for me. The shogan is not very good. The ninja is not only cheaper, but it is MUCH better.

I have everything installed, and after gaming for a little while here are the numbers.

IDLE: 40*C

LOAD: 65*C

It is still setting of my warning in PC Probe. so i guess my next step is going to be adding a second 120mm fan to the side panel and get another 80mm for the front of my case. if you guys have any other suggestions let me know. i want to stay away from water cooling for right now. thanks. :beard:

Does anyone know what temp my P4 should be running at? i know as cool as possible is best, but what temps are safe?
i have lost the paperwork on the processor somewhere in my apartment. so if you could let me know i would appreciate it. i am still impressed with the new heatsink, i just wish it would give me a bigger drop in temp. will it still go down another degree or two once my AS5 has been "broken in"? thanks. :beard:

I assume your 3.8 is overclocked? What speed was it at stock? You might want to back it down a little bit if it is that big of a problem. I doubt you will see any difference going from 3.8 to 3.6
