I can clock my PIII700 to 1072 with the Stock Intel H/S & Fan but the temperature are a little on the high side esp with the mini heat wave we have here in England!

Is it worth getting another H/S? By what can I expect temp to drop? At present I get 35c Idle and up to 55c under load!

Any advice or if you can point me in the direction of some fairly comprehensive views would be good.

Yeah if I were you I would definately try it. Since Intels run WAY cooler then the T Birds, I would prolly get a FOP38 (If you can stand the noise). They have very good performance for the price (About 20 bucks)

An Alpha Pep66 would be my heatsink of choice. You can chose a quiet fan and it will still be a very good heatsink. I don't like the FOP38 because its loud but a FOP32 is almost as good but the sound is bearable.
