    Default Socket 478 Cooler

    I have a P4 Socket 478 system with the stock Intel
    cooler installed. It's very loud, and I'd like to replace
    it. I want a new cooler which uses the stock Intel
    retention frame, since replacing the frame requires
    removing the motherboard, which I don't want to do.

    So, does anyone know of a better cooler which works with
    the stock retention frame, and has the usual desirable
    attributes of good cooling and low noise?

    Zalman CNPS 7700Cu is one, I used it on my 3.2GHz Northwood.

    Google "socket 478 coolers"

    I have spent a fair amount of time "googling" to try to figure this out.

    The Zalman CNPS7700-Cu looks like a good cooler, but it's hard to tell from the pictures on their site whether it uses the stock Intel Socket 478 retention frame. Can someone confirm whether it does?

    Thanks!

    Yes it does, zip over to the Zalman site and watch the installation movie (ensure you select the 478 installation movie), check out some other alternatives while you're there.
