New cooler?

Hey,

I'm looking for a new cooler for my Intel P4 Prescott 3Ghz CPU - socket 478.

Can anyone recommend a really good cooler for this heat-monster of a CPU?

Some guy told me to get a Hyper 48 from Cooler Master. Is that any good?


Cheers and thanks in advance!

  1. Just get zalman.... they come in heaps of flavours
  2. Zalman CNPS9500 looks nice, very silent and keeps cpu cooler.
  3. well i would say go for zalman the 9500 its quiet expensive but i think it's worth it, i have a 7000cu led and i'm very happy it made my cpu drope about 6/10 degrees , i have a processor like yours and it idles on 40 degrees on a moderate day on a hot day gos to 43 and on a cold day e idles on 36/37 degrees, and in full load i've never passed from 53 degrees it's pretty good very silent and quiet cheap. :D
  4. Im with the Zalman CNPS9500, for it been proven to be one of the best HSF you can buy. Check out the Toms review on this HSF for more info.

  6. My "idle" (meaning I have about 5 programs running in the background) status shows about 60 degrees, while at full load it tops at nearly 80C! :)

    I really need a badass cooler, as you can well see.

    Thanks for the tip, guys. I think I'll go with the Zalman.

    Wow.... my old system used the same processor and mine idled at 50C and load it got up to 69C.... that Zalman is really going to help.... and while you're at it... pick up some Arctic Silver 5
  8. My vote is the Zalman 9500 AT, and thats after first trying the Gigabyte 3D cooler. I have a similar setup and had the heat issue! The Zalman will cool it down, way down compared to stock and the 3D cooler, according to my real life experience. No more overheating shutdowns!
  9. Once upon a time there was a heatsink manufacturer named Scythe. They made great products cooler, quieter and cheaper than the competition from Zalman but nobody seemed to want them. One day they finally it figured out. People don't want to waste their money on boring, functional engineering parts. They want flashing lights, machines that go ping! A little bit of showbiz dazzle. Ninja balls!
