What is the best heatsink that will fit the IT7-Max2? Have a new board coming next week together with a 2.4 P4 and a stick of Corsair PC3200 CAS2. Also, since I'm new to the Intel scene (was AMD before), what is considered high temp. on an 2.4 CPU?

I was kinda leaning towards the Alpha PAL8942. Sure, the Swiftech monster is nice, but its too expensive here in Sweden. Costs an arm, a leg and a couple of toes :)

CoolerMaster IHC-H71

I am using a CoolerMaster IHC-H71

my 2.5g is running at 3.1g at 1.575 volts, temp is 46°C under load (1hour+ of 3dMark 2001).

I am able to boot and get about 1/3 of the way through 3dMark at 3.2g using 1.625 volts and running around 47°C.

Haven't tried a higher voltage at 3.2g.

I am very pleased with the CoolerMaster
