P4 coolers

Post by inteljunky »

I have had many intel chips and oddly I have never overclocked any of them except for a P100 to 120 about a month ago. Basicly I want to cool my north bridge and cpu to near ambiant temps at idle and noise is no issue. I just want to know what are the best items out there to cool my P4 down. I would like to beable to find the amount of W the cooler can remove and if its an air cooler how many CFMs it does. and uh i am not sure about this H2O+electricity thing, since the H2O is obviously not close to pure....

One of the guys here still uses his stock HS/F so stick with what came with your chip and you should be fine.

If you do want more try

www.coolermaster.com
and
www.thermaltake.com

They both give full specs of their fans and they do their jobs well

thanks for the info. I dont want to go buy a cooler and then have it perform poorly. If anyone has some good alternative means other than air i would like to view those as well.

the swiftech MCX and thermal right series of things will work well too, and watercooling is safe if done right.

I know I have posted this on another topic - but here it is again for a bit of interesting reading:

I use stock cooling at the moment... but am looking at getting a P4 3.06Ghz 533fsb, for backup in case anything goes wrong, as prices here are pretty cheap at the moment.... :D

sweet thanks guys. I did some more research, and went with the thermalright 94 + 92mm vantec..... with fan controller ofcourse.... keeps the thing as cool at full load right now as the standard HSF did at idle. so i am happy. only 47 @ full load instead of 66 and idle is about 37. at 26 incoming case temp. later when i think i have some money to utilize i am going to build me a water cooler.... homemade kit, brasing as many connections i can.
