    Please please, don`t keep opening new threads. You could`ve asked all these questions in your original thread.

    You computer will come with a stock heatsink and fan installed, which will be more than adequate. So, you shouldn`t have to buy any extra cpu cooling.

    Regards Howard :)

    If you`re so insistant on changing things in a brand new oem computer. Why did you buy a Gateway in the first place?

    You could`ve had a computer built to your specifacations.

    Plus, and this has been mentioned. If you start changing things inside your new computer and anything goes wrong. you`ll likely find you have voided the warranty.

    However, to answer your question. Zalman heatsinks and fans are very good. Just Google for Zalman.

    Regards Howard :)
