Oem Compaq/HP units had some great aluminum, sometimes copper core heatsinks with the backplate + screw in design. If you fan find a full Dell kit with the bracket, backplate, + weird green plastic clips they have alot of potential, especially the heat piped XPS coolers. Stock 478 Intel Prescott coolers are cheap and absolute overkill for any Willamette or Northwood cores.
