    Aircooled AMD Barton o/c to around 2.2GHz, with a massive copper hetasink.
    I'm trying to find some silver-based thermal paste, but it seems no-one around here has that.

    Score!

    P4's stock cooling solutions work great with thermal compound. No need for vantec or thermaltakes solutions anymore for Socket 478

    Not sure about the temp, but I use the stock fan along with 2 mounted on the back.

    Are you referring to Fahrenheit or Celcuis? I live in the US.

    That's kinda hot for your processor.
    You should peel off the thermal tape, sand the heatsink and put thermal compound on it. I bet it would go down to about 30 Celcius or lower.
