Heatsink and Fan

Well as my CPU is running a bit hot due to broken clips i'm going to buy a new heatsink and fan.

My CPU is Quad Core 2 Q8200 and my socket is LGA775.

I'm looking at buying one of these

Will spend anything upto £25. Also to have easy fitment so i don't have to take the motherboard out if you have any other ideas :). Please give me your suggestions!

Thanks

More about heatsink
  1. What size case do you have?

    Cooler Master Hyper TX-3 would be a better choice than either of the options you listed.

    That is my case, Is the Cooler Master Hyper TX-3 easy to fit?
  3. Plenty of room in that CM Elite RC-310 case.
    Check the review - the TX-3 goes on just like the stock intel heat sink fan.
    No need to remove the motherboard.
