Default Heatsink/fan???

I'm currently experiencing high temperatures (50-60 degrees celcius) with this heatsink/fan:

It's a piece of crap, so i'm thinking of getting this one:

Does it look adequate and does anybody have any experience with them!!!!

Thanx in advance

I've never used it myself, but I do beleive I've read some decent reviews on that one. Looking at the specs, that new ones pushes a good bit of air. I can't find much on that other one, but only being 2200RPMs, it can't be too much...

LOL, well I like the style of those(whatever kinda fan that is, a blower perhaps) but I don't care about the looks. I bet you could find a more generic version of that for less... I'm actually considering replacing my fan with a blower. One problem is I bet they are a good bit louder than a standard fan...

good choice. always get a heatsink made of copper, since the thermal conductivity is about twice as much as for aluminum. Get good thermal grease too. I bought one just like the one you have currently and it sucks balss compared to the stock heatsink. You win some you lose some.
