CPU Fan Question.

I have a P4 2.8 running under a stock Intel heatsink and fan. I have the fan plugged into my mb, and I can see how fast the fan is running. I can never get the fan to run over 2700 rpm. Is that really low for CPU fans? What should a fan run at to successfully keep a CPU cool? Along those lines, what heatsink+fan can I get on a budget (<$50) that would perform better? I've heard that Zalman is the sex, but I dunno for sure.

i have the same CPU as you and i have the Zalman CNPS 7000Al/Cu installed. temps dropped 7C idle iirc i'm sure it would be better if you opt for the full copper one.

Don't bother replacing anything unless your temps are too high. RPM doesn't matter unless a) your heatsink sucks, b) you have overheating problems in the first place.

If you are using a stock heatsink and are not overclocking, then don't worry about it. Just make sure the fan/heatsink arent full of dust

yup, I woudn't change it unless there is a problem, or your planning to up the voltage and fsb settings.

Get some canned air and blow out the heatsink and case ever once in awhile.
Edit: get that dust outta there.

Well, I don't know how to correctly overclock yet (still researching) so that isn't an issue yet. My temps never get above 45C when playing. Threshold is at 60C, and I doubt, unless I overclock, I'll ever get up there.
