    What kind of CPU do you have?
    Which model do you have?
  2. looks pretty standard to me - very much like old P4 sotck coolers. Cant see anywhere where it says what brand it is.
  3. time for upgrade?
  4. It looks very small, and fan speed is very high at more than 2800rpm so it will be very noisy

    This is a very cost-effective fix for LGA775 sockets:

    We have the latter installed and working fine on
    several overclocked "PressHots" :)

    You see, the stock Intel heatsink and fan are quite adequate;
    it's the stupid push-pins that you want to avoid, if at all possible.

    Also, the stock Intel HSF appears to have a lot more cooling fins:

    Hi, the only reason I ask is the Heatsink itself looks so... Thin. The normal one that I own is way thicker then this. Hight wise.
