this and it's copper cousin. This aluminum one is about $13 whereas its copper cousin is $40. Just did not know if it was really all that worth the price difference or if I should go with a different design for a similar price. Like a heatpipe design or something liek that. Still deciding though. Any suggestions?

socket 478 heatsinks are unfortunatly uncompatible, i have zipties holding a 478 on my 775, i would suggest a SI-120 for your 478, kept my p4 under 30c
Yeah, I checked to make sure the socket was right. Mine is currently a 478. I am considering some other cooling options also hoping ot maybe find a multi socket fan that I would be able to keep when i eventually move to a socket 775. That is not really an issue though at this moment seeing as it will not be for a while.

mine is also vertical, also if you want an extra 2-4c use 1000grit sand paper taked to a table and stroke the si-120 , theres copper below them there hills. i used 1000grit then 1000grit wet, then sos pad.
That is a very good temp reading, at least as compared to mine anyway. I think it would likely be in my best interests to aim at getting a good heatpipe and fan. Hopefully it will reduce the temp significantly. Also, I think i am going to change the way the fans are set up in my case to help airflow just a bit better which should help as well. I looked them both up (the two heatpipes) and found that the Si-120 is the heavier of the (that vs the 90 model). Everyone was saying it was heavier. I presume you would suggest the 120 model seeing as that is what you use, but any thoughts on the weight factor for each? There was only like a 10g difference between them, so I figured it wold not make that big of a difference. My case is a vertical set-up if that holds any bearing on your suggestions.

no, some boards do have a reenforcement brace on the back of the mobo , it wouldnt hurt to have one of them.
I have heard about doing that and have thought about it for mine to see how it would affect the temp, if any at all. It has a copper heat sink but aluminum fins. I thouhgt it may affect it some, but nowhere close to as much as replacing it with a good heatpipe would. So you think the weight will not be an issue?

im only talking about the liquid coat on the bottom, im going to use a polisher on it soon, since i have my ocmputer appart offen ill keep it clean
The aluminium increases surface area and protects the heat sink and pipes from corrosion i wouldnt advise removing it, it wont do anything for the cooling.
