I have a P4 1.8a that I have oc'd to 2.3. I have the vcore set to 1.625, and everything is stable. When the cpu is under 100% util, the temp starts to creep up to about 59 - 60 C.

I was given a Dragon Orb P4, that I am runnig at the lowest speed, as the fan is very loud at the higher speeds. I'm thinking about going back to the Intel HSF.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

you should go back to the original intel hsf. it should work good for your 1.8A at full o/c load, should be 50 - 53 C max if room temp is about 25 C.
