Im guessing you have a LGA775? Heres some heatsinks i like. For cpu fan, a Vantec Tornado is the way to go. You cant find a better cpu fan then that.

Heres the cpu fan.

Try it with the retail heatsink and see how hot it gets (turn off b4 u hit 65 or lower) I would recomend a heat sink either all copper or a copper center with aluminium fins. The copper will obsorb and disipate the heat faster.

Zalman fans are you're best bet.. they are quiet as hell and keep the cpu and surrounding chips cool... they are huge though and exceed the recommended weight but I haven't had any problems.

the cu7700 is supposed to be very good but its just as big as the xp120 but ive read the xp120 out performs it. but then again the zalman is cheaper. upto u really. i would get one of them two cos they are in a league of their own

I recommend thermaltake xaser 7, I was skeptical at first with it, but it kicks *** with 6000 rpm and all copper heatsink, instead of that aluminum copper core ****.
