Well I went for the Pure Copper Zalman heatsink and fan and that lowered my temperatures by about 6-7 degrees.

Zalman do a pure copper heatsink and this will be far more efficient at dissapating the heat produced by your CPU, however it comes at an extra cost. The alluminium/copper heatsink will lower your temperatures but not as much as the pure copper model.

That's a MONSTER of a heatsink (in size, I mean). Make sure you have the space first! Also, I personally wouldn't put that on a Pentium, even if it says it can. Also, I've never been wild about split-core heatsinks. UAYOR.

Like Shoobie say's i wouldn't put that on a pentium,if i were you i would look for a thermalright SLK-948U it's an all copper heatsink and then get a 92mm fan with good cfm's,this heatsink should drop your temp's 10c or more from stock cooling.

There is no way in hell a mear cpu heatsink/fan could bring the cpu temp down to 10C. 10C is way below room temp and it's very hard to get a cpu to room temp. Whoever told you that was lieing.
