I bought a motherboard combo that includes a Pentium D 3.2 Ghz processor and a heatsink fan that says it supports up to Pentium 4 3.8 Ghz processors. I have searched for cooling fans that specifically say they support Pentium D and could only find them on Intel's site.. I asked Intel if there are different cooling requirements for Pentium D versus Pentium 4 and they said yes.

Does anyone have experience with Pentium D cooling fans? If a fan supports Pentium 4 will it also be sufficient for Pentium D?

What is the make and model of the heatsink....if its a Zalman 7000, 7700 or 9500...it would certainly be okay. Also make sure you use a quality thermal compound (as opposed to the thermal pad that is usually pre applied to new heatsinks) like Artic Silver 5

From the review I read, its not a very good cooler, and is not rated to handle a Pentium D cpu....your best bet would be a Zalman....9500/9700 (make sure to check for mobo compatability) If you look at Zalman's website there are several models that will suite your needs just make sure your mobo is on the compatability list.
