Default cannot cool down, Best way to cool?, not liquid cooled

I posted a topic here a few days ago where I just installed a bunch of fans, i have a 3.0ghz p4 sitting on a p4p800S-X mb 1 ghz ram, 2 250ghz drives, geforce 5500 vid card.

even with the 7 fans I just installed I'm still idling at 55c and at 60 playing low quality games.

I tried installing an aftermarket hsf (spark 7 all copper) with silver thermal grease, and it didn't do anything, and it was LOUD, i mean LLLOOOUUUDDD.

I need something that will get this thing down 30 degrees, but I dont want to use liquid cooling.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

This is "the" best alternative to liquid cooling. So heres the link.
Nothing beats this nothing (*except liquid nitrogen*)

The temp of the room its in is 70F

and as far as the product linked above, I'm not about to spend $1000 on a cooling system, thats just a little out of my league.

I just want a good HSF that will fit on my mb and that will cool better than what I have now.

Thanks for the input.

the after market hsf that u got should be cooling it enough. did u clean the old thermal pad off the cpu, and properly apply the thermal compound? you shur your bourd is reading your temperatures correctly?

i know u have lots of fans from ur previous post. but i dont remember were thy r, im not shur how good ur airflow is threw the case, but... u could try, putting 4 of the fans right on the sidepannel over the cpu area as intake, and the rest- front/back/top panel fans outtake.

I actually removed the aftermarket hsf because it gave me the same temps and was ALOT louder. My stock HSF is a copper core and is quiet. It doesn't have a thermal pad, it had compound, which I cleaned and reapplied before I reapplied the stock HSF. I will change my fans around to have my side as intake also and see if that helps. I used some generic silver thermal compound and applied it as you would as5 compound.

I don't know what else to try.

and what bothers me is that I have another computer in the same room as this one, a 1.8ghz p4, and it runs 38C with no fans, other than cpu and power supply of course.

if u havnt already... i would talk to some of the members here who have experience with temp stuff/issues, and can tell u how to verify if your motherbourd is actually reading your temps correctly b4 buy something u may not need, unless ur not that tight on cash.

just make shur it not something like mentioned above, or a rong jumper setting, or rong bios settings, or whatever that could cause such a thing. b4 resorting to hardware mutalation.

have you seen the Thermalright XP120?
you can stick on a 120mm fan, and they are rarely loud
