Keep in mind.....get a "direct touch heatpipe" heatsink. My CoolerMaster TX-3 and Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro cost $15-20 and works great. I have MANY videos on YouTube under the same user name. Check out some of them if you want....but direct touch man....direct touch.....if you want cheap and useful.

I suggest this one from Thermaltake Max Orb, it's what I use. The main thing to consider is your mobo heat-sink pin connection. They come in 3 p in and 4 pin. If you have a 3 pin mobo best to get a 3 pin fan. If you mobo has 4 pin you can use either. If you have a 4 pin mobo and use a 3 pin fan and it has a fan controller built on it you might loose that fan controller option.

Good point on the fan connections. However I would get something like this if he had room. For the few dollars more....it's a litttle better cooler.

Using site Stormy used:

Scan.co.uk: RR-B10-212P-GP - Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus, 4 Heat Pipes, LGA775/1156/1366/AM2/AM2+/AM3

Scan.co.uk: NH-U12P-SE2 - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 Dual Fan Quiet CPU Cooler, Intel 755,i7,i5 and AMD AM2/3 Compatiable

Both good, I'm using the Hyper 212 Plus, but was leaning towards the Noctua until reading all the reviews on Hyper 212+ swayed me, working great. A Guy

CPU heatsink lapping...???
I've just finished reading a few different tutorials on how to lap a cpu/heatsink. Has anyone here done that and are the temp differences really that big? One guide only showed a 2 degree drop.
