Default Quick Question - Cooling Related

Hello all, Just wondering where I could get some Termalpaste, or something better because I was thinking about upgrading my CPU-Cooler into something alot better, does anyone have any idea's? I was looking at this one? - http://www.pcwcomponentcentre.co.uk/invt/cmacbv83u1

I know it's AMD, and I have P4 but this is just a guide-line, if anyone in detail could tell me how good this is, or post some links for TermalPaste or Coolers, would be great. Thanks!

That Heatsink/CPU fan you gave a link to, is no good. That fan only offers 22-CFM witch is horrible. You can find a way better heatsink and CPU fan.

Since your from the UK i dont know websites that ship out their. So im just going to give you links, you can write down the name of the hardware i recommend. Then work on finding it in the UK somewhere.

Heres the CPU fan i suggest. Witch out-puts over 80-CFM, this CPU fan owns that other one.

Thanks for reply, also I'am not too bothered about the price as long as it isn't too dear, so any suggestions will be great the website's I normally use are:

http://www.Ebuyer.co.uk

and

http://www.pcwcomponentcentre.co.uk/

Also I need to get my hands on some termalpaste, I've been told TermalTape is better? If so, Where could I get this from?.. Any details would be great Thanks again.

I just quickly skimmed the two sites you've listed, but I couldn't find any Arctic Silver 5, although I'm sure that one of your local computer hardware stores is bound to have it in stock, or they will be willing to order it for you.

I'am going to PCWorld this monday too see if they have any PSU's so I'll check around the store for any CPU-Coolers also I'll probs be posting a new topic on getting a new PSU from thoses sites because I don't think they sell PSU's there for some odd reason. PCWorld also has a site, but it's quite ****e, I'am sure you have heard of it www.PCWorld.co.uk


EDIT: You know how you have looked through them page(s), could you point out the best PSU-Cooling Fan?

EDIT (Again): How about this? http://www.pcwcomponentcentre.co.uk/invt/cmkhcv81u1

You are in the UK, this is perfect. Go to http://www.overclockers.co.uk and go to the cooling section. They only have the good stuff (But for some reason they have the same fan that the other guy said was horrible) for cooling. You can get some seriously good cooling solutions from there. if you decide on one from there, post it so we can see what your gonna get.
