Default CPU heatsinks and fans...

Im thinking about getting a new heat sink and fan because mine is not very good because one of the cpu mounting screws holders came apart and is now making a horrible rattleing noise and for other reasons as well (its not totally fellon apart).

Im sort of new when it comes to looking for the right heatsink and fans and what is conisdered a good one. Perhaps someone can tell me what are the crusail specs I need to look at and whats considered good? Or perhaps good links that tell what you think I need to know that explain thorughly?

Thanks

Definatley something copper, and with a large fan (hint, hint... Zalman). You should tell us what kind of chip you use, amd or intel, for specificity.

it also depends on his tolerance lvl 4 noise. some people don't mind the noise while others do.
