    What's the best heatsink and fan for a Pentium D?

    I just finished ordering my parts for my new computer. And since i'm getting a Pentium D processor (dual core) I hear it gets extremely hot, and the stock heatsink and fan just aren't good enough. So I was wondering if any of you know which heatsink and fan I should buy for the CPU, so it doesn't melt on my motherboard.


    Here are the parts I ordered:

    You might like to look around this site:

    http://www.overclockers.com/home.asp

    As it is an overclocking site they tend to review high end kit

    You could use THIS as a starting point. Their focus is on quiet, but the testing is thorough and you can find ones suitable for overclocking as well.
