Haha..I love how this thread is solved and everyone keeps trying to help
But yes...I know how small the new HSFs were for the 45nms...which is precisely why I never used it (until on this build)...I slapped on my old HSF from my E6420 (which was the size of the picture on the right) on my E8400 when I first got it before I got my Xiggy because the one from the E6420 had a copper core and the new one does not.
Needless to say, my temps are idling at about 40*...which is perfectly normal for a P4, in my book.
