Default cpu cooling

Personally, I'd pick up this:

http://www.arctic-cooling.com/cpu2.php?idx=80

The Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 PRO is the best cooler i've had for a CPU, and cools the CPU down alot better than the stock one. It uses heatpipes to send alot more heat out than just a standard heatsink would.
Plus, its cheap!

That should work on a 754 socket system

Talking Re: cpu cooling

Well, look up Sharkoon. They make very quiet, yet efficent fans that may get you started

EDIT:

Let me find the CustomPC magazine on case fans, and I'll check what came out at best for you.

Right, the best 80mm fan came out at the Sharkoon Silent Eagle 2000.
It runs at 2000 RPM, yet keeps noise down to 21.5DB and moves 26cfm of air. Alot for a efficent 80rpm fan.

The best 120mm fan was the Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000. Quiet, and yet, capable of moving 38cfm at 19db (Lower than most noise ambient levels)

They have brought out a 2000RPM model of the 120mm series though which moves even more air. They say 76cfm at 36DB (Not exactly loud)

Silent Eagles have the best noise vs performance, so may be worth looking into.

If you really aren't bothered about noise... then why not get Vantec Tornado's? Haha.... The TD9238H 80MM modwel for example can move 121cfm, yet at 54db, would be overheard...and not just slightly either.

yate loons for 120mm fans. No competition there. Kage, are you sure those silent eagles specs are correct? Did you verify them yourself? Those specs seem to be incorrect to me. Yates comes to the closest to their specs, and they are verified by a lot of the communities. The Thermalright XP-90c is very good. But you need a high powered fan, like a Delta or Panaflo.

I haven't checked myself, but CustomPC ran their own checks on them using scientific methods, that prooved pretty close, and sometimes better than the manufacturers claims.

It may seem wrong, but they are honestly really that quiet.

How is it not the right thing to do? The Tuniq Tower 120 is the best air cooler out there. The next step up would be water cooling.
