Fast and Quiet - new heatsink

My computer is faster with a new heatsink.

3 of the fixing brackets on the old one had snapped and the computer would shutdown from overheating before it booted. It must have also been thermal-trottling before because now it is 2-3 times faster and SILENT instead of a noisy wind tunnel.

Anne bought this Zalman heat sink from CCL online after an online vendor failed to ship the official HP part after a week.

Socket LGA1366, LGA1156, 478, LGA775, AM3, AM2+, AM2, 754, 939, 940 compatible, Mfg Code: CNPS10X-Performa
