Mobo - Asus P5P 800
CPU - 2.8 PresHOT

idle temps are 49
load temps have gone up to 73C!!

At first I wanted to replace the stock HS with the Blue Orb II, but wasnt sure if it would fit in the case.

Second, i was wondering about these HS, and which you would recomend as best for money/quality wise...

Thermaltake Cooling System CL-P0092 Silent 775 Heatsink w/ Heatpipe Technology, Funneled Fan (LGA775) $46.00.

SilverStone Nitrogon NT03 Heatsink For Intel Socket 478, LGA775, AMD Socket 754, 939, 940 $58.00

Thermaltake CL-P0114 Big Typhoon 4 in 1 Heatpipe Cooling For LGA 775/K7/K8 $59.00

SilverStone Nitrogon NT02 Heatsink w/Fan For P4 Socket 478, LGA775, and Athlon 64 $59.00

* considering as well * Thermaltake CL-P0257 Blue Orb II Cooler for Intel 775 AMD 939 754 - $49.99 (17dba, 77.85cfm sounds rather intruiging for the price. but setup might be a b*tch)

I plan on buying these parts from canadacomputers.com.

Thx in advance.

Might also look into some Zalman heatsinks, the local shop would sell a CNPS7700B-Al Cu for 40 bucks Canadian, or so they said. Would be pretty quite.

the BT is the best air cooler your money can buy, and with temps like that, i think you have no choice but to buy what will work best! and thats the Big Typhoon...

Just installed mine today. I used a very small wrench for the last 4 nuts, and i tightened it until the metal H-bracket was bending a little, that way I knew it was holding the copper base down firmly.
