I recently was going through my pc scrap pile... found an old HP with a 2.8 Ghz Pentium 4 single core. Thing had a pretty large cooler, with a back plate made by cooler master.

Took if off, much to my surprise the thing weighed a ton compared to the stock sink for my E8500. I correct me if I'm wrong, but the stock cooler seems like it doesn't even have copper in it... This thing had a large cylinder of copper and a 4000 rpm fan, compared to the 2500 rpm.

I had to try it out... The thing dropped my load temps 19C!!

I dont know if its because it had a backplate, it has more copper, or a faster fan, or maybe a combination, but man I was surprised to find this kind of performance from a scrap HP pc!

Needless to say, I'm now happily at 4.22 GHz on air!

i snatched my friedn's Q6600 heatsink as soon as his aftermarket cooler arrived,dropped temps enough for me to go beyond 1.4V and 3Ghz.can't use the 4k pentium fan on this though,the thing is simply too big for those fans.
