Hi all,

This may be a silly question but i thought id better ask first but, Would a P4 sink n fan be good enough to cool a Celeron D cpu?

I brought a soc775 silent cooler for a media system build, but at last minute changed the cpu to a celeron D 2.80ghz, and the cooler that came with the celeron is just a bit loud.

I presume you meant Heatsink and fan ?

Simple answer Steve...Yes its fine.
Though why change to Celeron from a P4...im guessing cost ?

Yes a Celeron is a poor mans P4
