Default Which CPU fan should I get?

Hello guys,

My CPU has been over heating and I think I need a new CPU fan. I got a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 Processor.

These are my two options

Hope you can give me suggestions and why

Thanks

I like the first one. It seems to me like it would be more efficient at putting out heat (assuming the pipes are copper).

Does it have to be those two? Push pins don't belong on anything except for the stock cooler.

You're using the stock HSF, correct? If so, it shouldn't be overheating. Just blow the just out, clean the base and the CPU IHS with isopropyl alcohol, reapply thermal paste and reseat the cooler.

Well, it's a pretty big factor when deciding what HSF fan to buy.
