First, find out which socket you have. This will depend on your model of Pentium 4. It will either be 478 or LGA775 depending on the model. Good brands to look into are Zalman, Thermaltake, Scythe, Cooler Master, and Arctic Cooling. Other brands may have good coolers as well. FrostyTech is a good place to look up reviews.
I agree with Someguy7. As I said in my first post, the temps are nothing to worry about. It would also not make much sense to invest in a computer that old. Perhaps you can get a used cooler on ebay if you really want a cooler computer.
