I'm looking to replace my stock XP2800+ HSF as it is regularly sitting in
the 60c range when idle and into the 70s under load. I've got 2 extra fans
in my case 1 blowing in at the front and 1 blowing out the back.

I've been looking at the Thermaltake range and pretty much decided on either
the Silent Boost CU or the TR2-M3 CU. Anyone know of any problems installing
either or both of these onto a 7N400Pro2 (Rev1) board? ... or even have a
better suggestion for a replacement?

Any replacements would need to be available in the UK or from a vendor that
would ship internationally.

cheers

Mal

FWIW, Front fans can be tricky, sometimes they can make matters worse. You
would probably need to still change Your HSF. Experiment.

As I am not familiar with Your set-up I can't advise as to a
better replacement. I am running intel's stock on my P4.

I would look at how good the contact is between the HS and processor also I
prefer to have the fan blowing in that is closes to the processor rather
than dragging air from the front. You may also want to see if you can have
both fans blowing in if you have enough places for the air to go out!
