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

Overheating can be caused by a accumulation of dust inside the case, have you cleaned the inside of the case recently?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Either one will do, the big question is will it fit in the case? Measure carefully
