I'm looking around in google and I can't get anything conclusive.

I've decided to get this
Processor

I'm trying to find out if its a northwood, prescott, etc. so I can get a good heatsink and fan for it. Is there any way to tell? I'm trying to get a good heatsink and fan to go with this processor, want to keep it real cool. I don't know what company to go with either, so any suggestions on a company or a fan/heatsink I'll listen.

Can you tell us what motherboard you have and if your planning to upgrade. Because thats not a very good CPU. Also I would go with AMD Athlon, their the best right now. Also is this for gaming?

I've already upgraded my motherboard, so I'll be sticking with it for now. Why is it not a good CPU? I currently have a 2.2gig celeron processor.

Specifically the motherboard is an Asus P4P800S-X and about all I do is gaming.

Well pentuim 4s are fine for gaming but if you want the extra proformance I would get a AMD Athlon 64. pentuim 4s are more for multitasking

well its WAAAYYY better than what I've got I'd say. I'm just not looking into getting another motherboard. Maybe next time when I build a computer instead of upgrade it I'll look into AMD.

Its a pretty good CPU big improvement on what you have now, it shouldnt make a difference what core it is for cooling it usually goes by socket type not core type.
