Try this one. It will run a few bucks more though. You should be able to get it for around $35. I've used this one myself and it is great for moderate overclocking. I ran my 2.6P4 400mhz clear up to 3.02 with no problems.

Good one, and good price. 7000A is $39
The upgrade to this is the 7000A Cu for $10 more.

But maintaining a strict budget, the Thermaltake Spark 5 runs right at $22.

Let's hack that $49 price tag... Trust me in that eWiz is reliable (I've used them several times, including my hsf) and you can get the 7000a-cu for $35.87 shipped when going through pricewatch:

CNPS7000a-cu

And I realize the original poster doesn't want to spend more than $22...I'm posting the above link because it's very handy when recommending the 7000a-cu in other threads, as it's the lowest price I've been able to dig up from a reliable vendor, and by a nice chunk of change as well.

You should look at my appraisal thread if you're interested in a 2.4C that's passed overclocking tests...

You should be OK if your motherboard is not on Zalman's list. I have a CNPS7000A-Cu on a Asus P4C800-E Deluxe board and it fits perfectly. I have my 3.2C running @ 3.6Ghz(could go higher but no real need to) with temps 38C(idle), 49C(Max). GREAT HEATSINK!

Ah poo! Why pay less when you can pay more!? Very odd logic you have there...very twisted.

Lol..I just keep Frozen CPU as a quick link as they carry just about everything outside of main hardware. I just give it a quick look through and link to them. I actually don't think I order much at all from them as much as I link to them. They're generally over priced on the stuff I want.

They had the stacker for $199 while newegg carried it for $154 and free shipping. (and who the hell is Taylor Huckstep??) Then they had the OCZ PowerStream 520 for $156, then newegg beat them with one about $120...free shipping.

I now have another bookmark down for a price comparison though! Thanks:D

I went with the Gigabyte 3D cooler pro.

Pretty nice heatsink if you ask me, also comes with mounting brackets for P4, Athlon XP and Athlon 64 so if you change proc's you can keep the HSF.'

Oh it lights up too. =]

Cheaper than Zalmans and thermalrights.

I paid 39.99 for the Gigabyte 3D cooler Pro from Fry's. Newegg wanted 45.99. And like I said, fits XP's, 64's and P4's.
