    Just to add to that link (which really is a rarity, not many Skt478 HSF roundups about) here's a review of Arkua's effort, the 868...

    I want your horny mouse-button lovin' right here, right now.

    Nice performer...



    Pretty quiet too.

    MuFu.

    Aruka does good sinks, i got a sliver mountain Hsf with a delta, and the fan and construction are way quiter than some other sinks that use Deltas, was surprised when i disassembled it and saw the sink was an Aruka branded, as was the shroud,it cools better than a CAK38 Se as well.

    Thanks for the review... I'm looking into Northwoods now and am very close to dropping my Thunderbird 1400.

    I bought a Thermaltake Volcano 7+ for a Pentium 4 1.6a. So far I have been a little dissapointed with its cooling ability. It seems just marginally better than the Intel stock heatsink that came with the cpu. Stock heat sink idled at 34C, this idles at 33C. I have installed it 3 times using Arctic Silver 3. The fan speed control is very handy, a 3 speed fan, I like to run it on low setting, medium is passable, hi setting is too loud, the mobo reports a 7000 rpm speed, medium 4500rpm, low 3400rpm. The Volcano 7+ installs on a Pentium 4 very easily and is somewhat easy to remove once you learn the trick.
    Good heatsink site. http://www.overclockers.com/

    The stock heatsink seems to cool quite well juding by that chart, much better than AMD stock compared with Alpha HSF.

    My Thermaltake Volcano 7+ is great compared to the Dragon 478 and the Retail HSF.

    Temps are good and cool.

    Jankerson, have you settled at the 2300 speed for your computer.
    I thought I might experiment and see what top speed I can run the computer using the low fan speed setting, then see what I gain going to medium & hi speed settings, then remove 70mm fan and try a 48cfm 92mm fan I have lying around using the 3 speed control. The 92mm fan should be much quieter, not sure if cooling will be as good, maybe at medium or hi setting.

    Yeh I think 2.3GHz is fine, I am running at Med speed 5100rpm. It's quiet, can't hear it over my power supply so it's OK.

    I am getting a P4 2.4 though, should be next week, waiting for them to drop alittle more. Going to use my 1.8A as a spare CPU, good to have a backup CPU.

    Figure the 2.4 should do 2.8~2.9 pretty easy without too much trouble.

    I run my 1.6a @ 2300mhz at low speed as well.
