i have a 2.8ghz p4 in 775, i was using my rigged SI-120 to cool, everything stayed under 35 until i upgraded my ram to 2gig's pc2-5300. i would like some recommendations on sinks. my budget would like to stay under 60 (not including ship).

my case has 2 120's in it plus a 120 on the si-120. i was looking at this
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835103026
i have plenty of room and a 120 to mount

anybody know where i can get one of there?

I thought this would be a good read for you.
This is the beginning of the article.
is the comparison between other coolers
According to the tests, the Thermalright Ultra 120 Plus outperforms everything by a fair margin.
Here it i right here.

However it looks a little more complicated to manage weighing in at 745g (thats over a pound).

Edit: I don't understand your edit.

Sorry, go to the "cooling at stock speed" page after you click on that link. The one you listed is really good for the price, you could also consider the one I already mentioned, but the only problem with these two are that I find they are quite heavy. I highly recommend anything on that site, that has a temperature of 30oC and below. You really won't get anything better then that.

it's an old cooler, can't find any reviews comparing it to anything recent and costs a bit more, not much though.
Here are the best benchmarks that I could find,

I'm not overly impress to say the least. I think you can find better out there.
I think stick with your original decision. It performs better then the typhoon and at a better price, not to mention if you add fans that it'll cool more then just the CPU.

i need some recommendations for a heatsink for 775, i have plenty of room in my case. im still using the ziptied down si-120. money wise id like it to stay under 60 +ship
im looking at these 2 right now
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835103016
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835103026

Blah...

Try this http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835106080

or the Scythe towers
http://www.newegg.co...name=Scythe USA

These can handle anything you can throw at them and keep grinning. I have seen the Thermaltake keep up with mid-range watercoolers even.

The typhoon is 18 month old, I could barly manage to find a review for it. Scyth is a pretty highly regarded CPU cooler.
