Question about what kind of fan to get ?

I just purchased my first products on the list of DIY Challenge II
I got a P4 3.4GHz and 2 Hitachi 80GB, my question is what's the best fan to get for that CPU, I've been reading some of the review and they all seem to complain that the fan that comes stock can't handle the heat.

Your cooler model is dependant on you chip socket type.

I have a Thermaltake Silent 775 for my Dual core 830 w/ OCZ thermal paste. My CPU runs at 43 at idle.

Trusted brand names are
Thermaltake
Zalman
GlobalWIN
Cooler Master
(I think Thermaltake has the largest variety)

Find a make & model that works with your socket type and either do a google search for a review OR go to newegg.com and when you look to purchase one you'll find consumers ratings and comments. Sometimes pricegrabber.com has review when you search for that product. I like legionharware.com for reviews.
