CPU Issue

I'm on an Intel P4 3.60 GHz - I'm having heating/noise issues.

2 solutions:

1 - effective cooling system, can you recommend something good?
2 - getting a core 2 duo desktop, only problem here is the price, the " bas-de-gamme " E6300 1.86GHz 2M cache costs $183 according to Intel's price list, but $208 (ex. VAT) from pcandparts, and they don't have anything better.

the aim here is getting a fast/silent system that could be placed in a bedroom,

thanks.

Re: CPU Issue

it depends on how long you intend to keep your system upgrading to core 2 duo requires a new a motherboard (and maybe new ram)

Samer, Just go ahead and add a cooling fan, make sure the Fan will below in the direction as the other fans so U will have a flowing current inside the box.

It is the easiest solution, About the noise,  it will only add a few dbs to UR noise level, U would not even notice the difference.  :)

You can have a very silent air cooling system if you carefully choose all your components (including the case). Bass t pas bien parti avec ce CPU.
