    Id like to know what is the fastest compatible cpu I can buy for it and the name / make of a good fan please.

    Thank you for any help.

    Maybe click the link on that page which says CPU SUPPORT ?

    Pentium 4 3.4GHz apparently. Stock retail cooler included with those CPU's should work fine if your case cooling is ok. Get a Zalman 7700 or 9500 if you want silence.

    Fair enough, i didnt read it thoroughly enough.
    Although from what I can see, the biggest is a P4 3.06 - which I cant find for sale anywhere!

    Thanks for the fan advice too.

    these processors are now end of life, and so you wont get a retail version anywhere, unless its back-stock

    you might get one second hand on the bay of e

    Ah yeah sorry... my inability to read simple tables is showing through

    As above, the 3.06GHz P4 probably only exists on eBay now!
