    Do you plan to overclock?

    Intel don't do OEM chips, so HSF should be included.

    But from the thread's/etc I’ve been reading, supplied HSF is not very quiet & efficient (if overclocking). As replacement, the Scythe Ninja Plus Heatpipe CPU Cooler (Socket 478, 754, 939, 940, LGA755) (HS-003-SY) keeps on being mentioned/recommended/ordered/etc :D

    It's not a question of if it ok for Conroe, more of, will it fit your motherboard. It should do but sometimes capacitors etc get in the way of it fitting - but I believe Scythe's pretty much fit most mobo's/cases.

    Big typhoon or the freezer 7 pro are the most popular choices around here. From the look of things though, it doesn't look as if the conroe's are super hot, but the freezer 7 pro is dirt cheap anyway!

    AC Freezer 7 Pro.

    This is a top cooler for the money.
