hi all<br><br>
ok i was thinking of changing the cpu fan for a bigger one but i am not sure if it's worth it?<br><br>
ok so the fan i have atm is <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=overclockdotnet-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2FCooler-Master-DI4-8KD3B-OL-Processor%2Fdp%2FB0002F91A8%2Fsr%3D1-4%2Fqid%3D1159756260%2Fref%3Dsr_1_4%2F202-8003461-8475059%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Delectronics" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cooler-Maste...&s=electronics</a><br><br><br>
now if i got say <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=overclockdotnet-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2FZALMAN-CNPS-7000B-AlCu-Processor-aluminum%2Fdp%2FB0006VHVB4%2Fsr%3D1-7%2Fqid%3D1159756260%2Fref%3Dsr_1_7%2F202-8003461-8475059%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Delectronics" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.co.uk/ZALMAN-CNPS-...&s=electronics</a><br><br>
would it realy do a lot better at cooling or should i stay with the one i got?<br><br>
thanks for any help.<br><br>
(edit) how hard is it to change the heatsink and fan?<br><br>

It would improve a bit.<br><br>
But, take a look at this one:<br><br><a href="http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Other_CPU_Coolers.html" target="_blank">Noctua NH-U9 CPU Heatpipe Heatsink (HS-001-NC)</a> £29.32 Including VAT at 17.5% (4th from top).<br><br>
Just add a good 92mm fan, and you'd be set.

I would personaly go with the Zalman 9500 if you want an upgrade from what you have now other than that i dont think you will see much of a difference from the links mentioned above, just my opinion!
