buy either a true like your freind tells you or if u want to spend a little less a tuniq tower is a good solution. dont use the stock heatsink it is teh suck ^_^. a few other ways to bring the temps down is buying a better thermalpaste like AS5 or lapping your heatsink.

I bought a thermaltake heatsink (and it is huge) for my last computer and never put it on and I tryed putting it on this one, but when I went to put it on top of my processor the heatsink would sit on top, but the brakcets wouldnt sit right at the bottom cause there was some components on the motherboard in the way. I think they were capacitors or something.

So should I try and reseat my current stock one? Or should I try and get a new one? Maybe the "Thermalright ULTRA-120 " my friend tells me its really good.
Yes, also switch to Windows Vista Ultimate, Home is giving many problems, Home is for nongamers dude!
