if don't want OC just buy original Stock cooling intel very very enough, don't waste money for pentium4 (old PC), save money for upgrade, it's the best
@henydiah buying a new heatsink is probably cheaper than saving.
yes cheaper, in the future P4 not wort & very very Old , u much saving money for buy New PC/Upgrade
hendiyah makes sense... but then again i have a 8 year old Celeron pc still running good (for the missus)... so maybe OP wants to prolong its life AMAP... the stock cooler nowadays is available for less than $10... and should be sufficient in no OCing scenario... otherwise go with a $30 hyper 212+ (i know its overkill but OP has a budget upto $50)...
of course ..... hyper 212 smart , quick & usable for Hi end Processor , it can take very easy for P4 proc .. wow , temp, temp...p very very low
And he could OC the hell out of it, get that P4 up to some nice high clocks :3 If he got a non-stock cooler i mean.
