    find the cause of the heat:

    is it dusty?
    inadequate case cooling?
    inadequate CPU-HSF?

    How hot are we talking about? can you provide us with some asus probe/speedfan/everest readings on idle and load temps?

    If you are still using the cpu fan that came with the ASRock, you will benefit from buying an upgrade... only $15 to $25... Cooler Master, Zalman, or one recommended by the computer store.
    Also, check the install of thermal paste between the fan and the CPU...

    I have bought an aftermarket but i think i was tricked, they said the low profile spire copper heatsink would do the trick it cooled it a little bit not much though. And i've tried differents amount of thermal paste. SO i've been saving up for liquid cooling. like 140 bucks or so and i almost have it.

    You should just go with a Zalman all copper headsink and arctic silver 5, That lowered my cpu by like 15 celcius.
