Default Recommended HSF?

I'm running a Pentium D 3.00ghz processor with a somewhat cheap hsf on it, and am wondering if this hsf
would be good enough to help lower my temps.

Currently at idle its running at 75-80 degrees, i want to know if that heatsink will help my problem?

i would get this one instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185001
It is one of the best aircoolers you can get without the excess noise from the heatsinks needing a screaming Delta.

Also the Thermaltake Big Typhoon is very good.

The others are good, but my favorite is the Zalman 9500

The above two heatsinks both use 92mm fans, which in a sense, push less air at the same noise level when compared to a 120mm fan. Im not saying they are bad, but its not as effective. There is a 120mm version of the heatsink that Amish Kid pointed out too.

Yeah I just posted the 92mm one because its $10 cheaper and still cools very good.

92mm fans are louder than 120mm fans and push less air. I would know cuz i modded out my Zalman 7000B fan for a Triblade Delta and it is audible even at 7V.
