Funny you should ask right after I wrote something about this....click the link about it in my sig and read what I think. Of course, with the exact setup I used you would do better with a P4 because of the cooler running temp, but the same logic and process would apply. Is your P4 a Willamette or Northwood?

A hot running Willamette unfortunately.

Still, it doesn't run as hot as a XP...you could definitely slap a MCX478 and an 80 watt TEC on it like I did mine and get some good cooling.
