this new 2.8 cpu sounds like a vacumn cleaner and its not even overclocked, is there anything i can do ? or should i just take it back to the shop ?

u sure? i thought the stock HSF was relatively quiet. You could invest in a after market zalman hsf or them heatpipes from gigabyte, thermaltake etc

I love my 7000cu. Much quieter than my old thermaltake spark7.

The prescott kick out more heat so the stock HSF has a higher RPM fan. A zalman hsf is your best bet but your going to have to turn up the RPM on the zalman but want be as loud.

the fan on my recently purchased 2.4A Pressy is very low on the noise scale and
its running at 3.52Ghz on air/stock cooler/1.44 volts.sounds like your fun is fubar.
