Thermaltake Blue Orb II CPU Cooler CL-P0257, Copper Core & Aluminum Extrusion Heatsink, w/ Blue LED Fan, for Intel 775 & AMD K8 - Discount Online Store Houston Texas

This one would match my case, is it good?

How do you know what a good heatsink and fan is for CPU??

do you have to remove the motherboard on most after market heatsink/fans for CPU's? or does it pop off without that? That is one of the few things in my computer i'm not familiar with haha..

2. You overclocked it a bit too much and thats ur heat issue
3. You have an EE P4 those are hot too!
4. Stock HSF maybe not functioning or its not installed properly

the p4 northwoods have some of the best heat dissipitation, you could try that but if your running a p4ee you would sacrifice a lot of performance just get a better cpu cooler

I have the p4 3.4ghz... I think it is the prescott (its so darn hot!).... I'm going to likely order a new heat sink fan for the CPU... I've covered all the other possible heat sources.

2 fans out
1 fan in
1 fan on cpu heatsink
1 fan accelero x2 fan on video card
1 fan on hard drive
1 power supply fan

why do you think that more fans are better? less fans that move more air and heat is ok too

Why is the CPU still idiling at 50C and 68-71C during gaming???? I have a new ULTRA FIRE 775 Heatsink fan, 2 exhaust fans (top = 60cfm, back = 34 cfm) and 1 intake fan (side = 34cfm)..... No front areas for fans... I figured this would be PLENTY to keep it cool.... System temp is idling at 53C as well.... I don't have performance problems, expect in gaming (when temp hits about 67C or more)....
