Nah, go with the xp90, not copper, just plain old xp90. Its the most famous HSF... You do not need watercooling, you will only get a few degree less ONLY IF u spent a LOT on the best systems custom made. a plain cheap watercooling will not perform as well as a very nice HSF (xp90 + tornado or if u cant handle noise, a panaflow 57 cmf fan)

I'm not sure what he means my, "fasteners". Are you taking about the plastic molding around the CPU socket on the motherboard? Are you talking about the some portion of the Stock HSF?

Zalman makes a great CPU cooler. Pick yourself up a Zalman 7000cu.
It supports 478 sockets. Here check it out.

I think he's talkin about the plastic fasteners that hold down the HSF.
