CPU Fan for Socket 478


Senior Member
I need a new CPU fan for a Socket 478 Pentium 4 (2.8 MHz).
Does anybody have any recommendations? It doesn't have to be fancy or particularly quite (although quiet doesn't hur).

I'd go with a thermalright heatsink. They're generally regarded as the best (other than water cooling) by gamers and overclockers, and the heatsinks are good enough that they'll sufficiently cool a non-overclocked system with no fan. I've got a thermalright slk-947U, and it keeps my amd xp2500+ at 35 degrees. I'll also mentioned i've got my chip overclocked to 3200+
