Probably one of the Zalman 7000's or whatever they are called, if your motherboard can support it.

If your motherboard supports it, I use and highly recommend the XP-120 HSF.

XP90... price to performance it's your best bet. Not to mention, anything better that is an air cooling solution is only better by a very small margin...

in general, if you're choosing air cooling, choose thermalright.

First of all lets get this straight. Are you looking for a fan or a heatsink and a fan?

XP90 (or XP90c), or if an XP120 fits on your mobo get that..
Along with a Panaflo H1A or M1A, can't go wrong with either!

Ok, I had a thread about this a little bit ago and I've decided to go with the ThermalRight XP-90 with a Panaflo M1A 92mm fan. I havn't ordered it yet but that's what I'm going to be getting. Apparently the XP-90Cu is also pretty good so that would also be a good bet. Or, if you have room, go with the XP-120 with the 120mm M1A fan. Oh, and here's the review Clay did on the XP-90. Linky (http://www.nvnews.net/reviews/thermalright_xp-90/index.shtml) . It definately helped me make my decision.

Just a wee question regarding the XP-90 - does anyone here know if it performs substantially better than the stock Intel heatsink on older P4 Northwoods (Like my 2.4B for example). Obviously it'll need a reasonable fan, but assuming that it has one, what kind of temp drop would I be looking at?

Huge. Keep in mind the thing is a behomoth. You should see substantial drops in cooling. The XP90/120 are the best air cooling you can buy. Most people I know couple them with a tornado... but that can get really loud :D

The XP90C was designed to work on motherboards that the XP-120 would not. I'm not sure if that motherboard supports it or not. The XP-120 is a better/quieter cooler then the XP-90C as it moves more air with less noise. Do some research if you want or just go with the XP-90C.

You can't go wrong with either. The XP-120 dropped my CPU temperature 12c on average between idle/load temps when compared to a standard HSF that comes with the CPU.
