Hey there guys well i have about £30 pounds to spend on some good air cooling for my current processor which is shown in my sig below..i could probably go a little over 30 pounds but its just a guidline..i hav looked at the zalman 9500 but i was wondering if there are any lighter coolers out there just as good.

Hmm...idk...never used it. Is there some reason (besides a name) that it is called vapo chill?

the fan is 17 cfm and 23oo rpms or so so it should be too loud at all. it also seems to come with a fan control so it should be fairly quiet. havent heard how good they are but it seems like it should improve on what you have now.

i had the ac freezer for my athlon 64 and it was a very capable fan and very quiet as well.

ENTERPRISE1701,

I have an XP90 I no longer need as I have upgraded to water cooling.

Here's a link to it's specs. It was a great CPU cooler and is designed for use with skt 478. You want? I'll sell it to you for £20.00, plus £2.50 recorded P&P to where-ever you are in the UK. I'll even throw in a free (and unused) Silent Cat 9cm fan to mount on top. What'cha say, eh?

I used to get 55°C full load at 3GHz. It is, however, difficult to compare temps from my Prescott with what you currently get with your Northwood. The pressy (in skt.478) runs so hot compared to other CPUs... Also, I only used a 36CFM fan on the XP90 when I was using it, as I found the "Silent" Cat was still too noisy for me...

If you check out this review of your fan though, you can see how it can keep my CPU down to 47°C full load on a HS without any heat-pipes! The XP90 has 4 heat-pipes and a nickel plated solid copper base. With your fan on the XP90, cooling your Northy, I'm sure you would get the kind of cooling you're after.

I would be willing to drop the price down to £20.00 (for the cooler and shipping together) if I leave the "Silent" Cat fan out of the deal. I don't think you'll be needing it anyway, as your fan seems far superior and will most definitely give you better cooling than the Cat can. What'cha think? Any good to you?
