Default Still Deciding on Prescott HSF

Stock Intle HSF sucks somethin fierce.

Looking at the Antec P180 that should help my cooling problems some considering my current case blows as well however i still need help deciding on a Heatsink/Fan for my 3.6 775 p4.

I know the Zalman is good, and I know Thermaltake makes some quality parts

I dont really have a "target" temp, just as long as it will keep it running more smoothly than it is now.

I put my vote for the Zalman 7700cu.

What is your temperature?

True. I got myself a Thermalright XP-90. It dropped my temperatures by 25 degrees, dunno if you'll get the same drop but I highly reccomend it.

The stock HSF is the best air cooling for the LGA775 cpu, with thermal pad. . Maybe you did not install it correctly?
