I have a pentium 4 socket 478 and I am wondering which heatsink i could buy that would give me the best performance for overclocking?
If you know of one, where could i buy it at?

I think I have seen the alpha heatsink, it does look pretty good.
Is it the model pal8942?
I have seen that one at heatsinkfactory.com

a good Watercooling setup beats them all ;) Provided you get decent components, as some air coolers do a great job at the expense of noise.

I had an AVC sunflower for my P4 and it was decent but If I wasnt going to h20 cooling i'd have purchased a Swifty an Alpha or a Thermaltake Volcano 7

Check out the heatsink and h20 roundup HERE



I finally went to H2o cooling a couple weeks ago and cant believe it took me so long to do so :clap:
