Default good s478 cooler

Hi
well i have a celeron 2.8ghz..as some of you know lol (pva) :| im wondering what a good cooler would be. either cooljag JAC362A $35AU or Thermaltake Spark 7+ Xaser Edition $45AU. it is a celeron 2.8ghz 400fsb northwood, absolutely no overclocking so will the el cheapo JAC362A be sufficient? coz i got good case cooling, 23C~ motherboard temp (after whole day on) or should i go with the Thermaltake Spark 7+ Xaser Edition which i think it overpriced.
i do not know why the JAC362A is so overpriced also.. is it worth the extra $10 for cooling which will make absolutely no performance gain

The Intel stock heatsink and fan will work just fine.

Uuumm..depends. With the stock, you get temps of like 55C idle. But I suppose the Celeron doesnt get a lot on it, seeing as how you cant game on them.

The heatspreaders are smaller which makes the airflow get in better, but dust gets also better in. So you might want to consider weekly maintenance.

Also, Heatpipes, which conducts the heat makes the CPU be more cooler.
