    Are there best Socket 478 Intel CPU coolers? The stock cooler doesn't prevent the CPU from overheating.

    I downloaded and read the manual for the CPU cooler. I wish that the manual was saved in PDF file instead of JPG file. I'll have to take my computer apart, remove the motherboard from the tower case, remove the original CPU cooler bracket from the motherboard, install the new CPU cooler bracket on the motherboard, install the new CPU cooler on the motherboard, install the motherboard into the tower case, and put my computer together. I rather build a new computer than to take my old computer apart and I'll buy the new cooler for the new computer.
