Hi, Im getting a Intel Pentium 4/ 3.0C GHz w/ HT and i wanted to get a little bit better fan than the stock, i was thinking about the ZALMAN CNPS7000A-Cu Pure Copper CPU Cooler, will this fit and will it be better than stock? I dont want to spend over 50$ so if i cant get one for that cheap then ill forget it

Below are two fan\heatsink sets I has used on customers machines. Both do an excellent job at cooling. I also have used the stock fan\heatsink set included in the retail box pentiums and have never had one not cool properly. In fact my video unit is running a 3.06 Pentium HT with stock fan and during full render\compile for hours at a time the temp rises only about 6 degrees C.

Here are two alternatives both thermaltakes of which I am partial to:
Spark 7 plus

Hope that helps you.....

If you got the retail package, why do you think you need a better fan? I've found the Intel fans to work quite well on all the P4 systems I've assembled.
