    The p4 stock fan is great for keeping temperatures down and some people even use them for overclocking. Your not planning to overclock so save ure money mate.:cheers:

    For relatively small overclocking, the stock HSF works wonders... my 2.53 ran at 3.04 stable using stock cooling for the longest time until i bought a 7+ But ya, since you won't be overclocking ... keep the stock.

    When the P4 came out, Intel did a great job at making a solid hsf. They are all aluminum with a good quiet fan. For your situation, I would also have to say stick with the stock hsf.
