I got the Gateway FX 400S desktop
with Pentium D 830 on Intel 945G Big Lake mb.
The system runs 78-85C idle which seems very hot. The stock heatsink is aluminum, no fan. Instead there's a 120mm on the front of the case and another one - on the back. I tried to put a nice Zalman 90mm on it, but descovered that the CPU under that sink is positioned diagonally, like a diamond. The screw holes do not corespond the diamond shape, you can see it on the sink. Didn't work. Could anyone suggest an alternative cooling solution for such weird config (fan/hs)?
