    I'm looking to buy a fan for my P4 2.0Ghz. I don't want to use the intel fan because i have heard it doesn't do a good job of cooling the CPU if you're going to overclock. I am using an EPoX 4G4A+ motherboard, so there isn't a lot of space. Can anyone recommend a good quiet CPU fan?

    I'm using an Alpha 8942 at the moment - you can choose a 80mm fan as quiet as you want & still get resonable performance. the Thermaltake Volcanoe 7+ is a good one as well - it includes a switch to adjust the rpm's (and noise) of the fan to suit your needs.

    Thanks, i bought a vantec GSN-7025, I heard that it's pretty good also. Only 39 dB.

    hmmmmm....
    all aluminum HS & a 70mm fan - not what I would have chosen, but as long as you're happy.
    Do you seen any improvement over the Intel HS ?
