    80mm for the case fans these are important, cuz if you dont get the hot air out and cold air in, you will have serious cooling problems.
    as for heatsink, go with something good. Volcano7+ is a good choice and you can mount it on a P4. But there are others. Look for reviews if you dont want 7+.

    Don't know where this post belongs...so, will leave it to
    Wiggo/Beefy to locate...............

    Thermal Take Dragon Orb 3 HSF was just installed on
    a clients pc as part of Duron to Athlon upgrade.........and he now claims.....through no fault of his own, and swears there was no
    Foriegn Object Displacement........that 3 of the fan blades were
    sheared off .........and he was only made aware by the ensuing
    vibrations that he felt ...............Anyway, does/has somebody
    got a clue regarding this product and similar prob's?????

    Keep in mind client in question ask why his PSU is now running at Higher temps :rofl:

    A common prob with them as the soft metal is easily bent and will result with broken or jammed fans but replacement units can be obtained (really though those Orbs are POS).
