Best solution for P4 3.4Ghz (northwood socket 478)

Wow, I haven't posted in this place in a while. Anywho, can someone give me some suggestions on the best cooling solution (HSF, not water cooling) for a P4 3.4Ghz Northwood/Socket 478? I don't want anything over the top... something simple and works better than the stock cooler provided by Intel. Thanks,

  1. I'm thinking the best is a Thermaltake XP120, but it won't fit on some mobos, xp90c or Zalman 7000/7700 (7700 may not fit either) are next.

    None of them are too far over the top (around/under $50), and work well.

  2. Thermalright XP120, or the Arctic Cooling Freezer 4.

    Thermalright XP120 is the best of the best out there, but IMO the arctic cooling Freezer 4 is the best price/performance ratio heatsink, it performs great and is very very quite.
  3. btw freezer 4 can be found at 25 dollars, and it performs better than the Zalman stuff:D
  4. I'll take a look at the Freezer 4. I need something quiet. My wife will kill me if it's too loud. Thanks for the advice.

    Mike.
  6. $26.99 on newegg.com. Not bad at all sir.

  7. I highly recommend that heatsink, the only downside is that the fan cannot be replaced, but it does have a 5 years warranty from Arctic cooling, but then again, in 5 years i'm sure we'll all be on 32core CPU's.
  8. Hehehehe... sup wusy? LTNS. I need a new hobby... one that doesn't include distributing pirated software and movies. So... i think i'm back for at least a little while. I have some catching up to do however. Thanks for the warm welcome. :-)
