well i built this dadburn machine and i had a couple of strokes, think it messed up my mind,forgot a lot about it.
ever since i booted it up for the first time the cpu fan would not start untill i would spin it a little with my finger, now it will start on its own every once and awhile but i have to give it a little help most of time.
i want to replace the heatsink/fan (its a intel fan that came in box with my P4 3.0G cpu box), the MB is a ASUS P4C800E Deluxe P4/Intel 875P/800Mhz/ socket 478/pin
i have no idea what kind/size to get, dont want a expensive one just one that would keep from blowing up. with the one i got now this thing idles at 52C and gets to 70C when i run a scan like spybot S&D.
1- need help finding right heatsink
2-do i have to take MB out to replace?

thanks
harley

Actually, the temps you mentioned aren't all that uncommon for a Prescott core CPU .

Even with a aftermarket cooler [heatsink/fan] the coolest I've ever got one to run was around 45C .

Socket 478 heatsink/fans here,

For the record the,

TR2TT TR2-M12 80mm Ball CPU Cooler - Retail

has a very high rating on newegg.
I bought one based on that.
It is a piece of junk as far as I'm concerned.
It worked so well I took it off & put the stock intel back on.
I still have the TR2TT TR2-M12 in a drawer .

That looks like a "knock off" of a HP/Compaq small form factor desktop.
[I have an almost identical one I took off of a "brand name" unit , I think it was a HP/Compaq]

One of the reviewers professed it dodn't work well on their Prescott 3GHz but I make some allowances for newegg reviews.
When it comes to thermal compound a lot of people don't know more isn't better.

My opinion is, I'd give it a try.
