    I had heat issues with my old cooler and bought a thermaltake one locally which does the job but.... its noisy as hell

    what is a decent cooler as my pc is near a rad and prescotts are quite hot at the best of times, was thinking of a zalman type one possibly so if anyone has any readings/thoughts on these then let me know

    cheers

    This one. With the right fan (just choose a 92mm silent one) it will be virtually silent plus if you overclock it will still be ultra quiet. I have one on the 670J prescott (supposed to be the hottest Intel) and it never goes much beyond 50c on full load. Much better than the Zalmans I have owned as they are noisy and fan mods are hard to perform on them.
