    What's the ideal cooling for...


    I've got a 2.8 Ghz Intel P4 (478)

    overclocked to 3.0

    i want to go to 3.2

    What would the ideal cpu fan be for my situation?

    Well, there's no guarantee that the fan is the bottleneck, but basically you want a big, all copper heatsink, and good thermal paste. I recommend the Zalman CNPS7000a-Cu, or a ThermalRight SLK948 with Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste. Also be sure you have enough case fans (blowing in and out) and good airflow through the case.
