Hmm, i was interested into getting maybe a new heatsink fan.

I would like one that i didn't need to remove the MOBO to install.

also I would like it to be as cheap as possible because i'm not OCing, and im just upgrading over my stock Heatsink

EDIT:

its a LGA 775 and Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0ghz

This is cheap and has shown to do very well in comparison to other coolers at stock speed: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835186009. Not good for OCing though.

I have read good reviews on this one, a little more expensive than Titan8990's suggestion.

If you want to check it out they were both reviewed recently in the same Anand Tech article: http://anandtech.com...doc.aspx?i=3210.

Where is your current CPU fan plugged in?

The heatsink should pop in like the stock fan does.

The stock HSF should be fine for you if you are not overclocking. Why do you want a new one?

Ah, I see, well I would strongly recommend the one troy recommended if you were ever planning on overclocking, but for your uses, Titan's recommendation should be fine.
