the bill of materials for the original system, or a visual inspection of
the system. A Pentium-D socket 775 cpu could have almost any sort
of cooling solution on it from a passive heatsink with an external 120mm
fan (typical Dell desktop configuration) to a passive heatsink with a
row of hotswap fans (typical 1U/2U server configuration) to a stock
intel heatsink/fan (could be any of a half dozen different
configurations, replace the whole heatsink/fan assembly) to an
aftermarket heatsink fan (whereupon I'd also suggest replacing the
entire heatsink/fan assembly)
