Since I want to OC my E6600 to 400FSB, I need better cooling for my CPU,
I am now using the zalman 9700 for my CPU cooling, but I think I still need a good case fan since my CPU can't reach 400 FSB ( too HOT! ), any advice for a good case fan :) ?
Thank you.

Any variations of 120mm size fans should work well.

What motherboard do you have and do you know if it will reach a 400FSb .Try lowering the multipler to 6x and see if your board will run at 400FSB because some of them just will not reach that high no manner how much cooling or volts you add to the CPU,I can tell you that a Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme with a good 120mm fan will cool better then the Zalman 9700 ,but the Zalman 9700 should be plenty to cool a E6600 to 400 .with my E6600 and Evga 680i-SLI and a Zalman 9500 would do 500 on the FSB with the multipler at 7x.

According to the information I got, it can, the mobo that I'm using is P5B-Deluxe Wifi/AP. :)

My old Asus commando wouldn't go above 356mhz FSB.

I use Scythe fans, the S-FLEX SFF21F 63cfm fans are really quiet.

I had a problem, today I got my Silverstone FN122 120x120x25 case fan, installed it, power up my PC, and I'm sure that the fan is working, but, the temp inside my PC didn't drop a little, motherboard still got 45c, my 8800GTX still got 78c, and my E6600 is the same temp also, I don't know why, the cpu cooler I'm using is the zalman 9700, any idea? :(

Due to the lack of equipment, i can't make a screenshot of my PC, but instead, i found a pictures that looks like my PC, so before you see the picture, here's the detail,

The mobo that I'm using is the P5B-Deluxe wifi, Cpu is E6600, the HSF I'm using is the Zalman CNPS9700 NT, the 120mm case fan I'm using is the Silverstone FN122 ( 1000 rpm ), Oc'ed my cpu to 3.0G ( 333x9 ), vcolt = 1.35V ( 1.304v in Cpu-z ), when Idle, my Cpu stay at 43c, core 1 and core 2 are both 50c, mobo is 42c, when full loaded, Cpu temp will raise to 55~57c, core 1 and core 2 are both at 60~63c, the case I'm using is a tower case, and here's the pic from the internet, shows the cnps9700, the same position as I mount my HSF, and the Silverstion FN122 is right behind it, and the case is closed,
any idea? :)

I actually just go to my nearest grocery store and buy a big bag of block ice. Drop that bad boy on my CPU and never once has it overheated. Running it at 6Ghz pwning all you Core2 ownerz... :retard:

If you want a good balance between noise and performance:

I'd say the above or an EBM papst. I have all my system fans on a 4 channel Sunbeam rheobus so I can control their speeds easily without opening the case. It's like the below:

I pulled the LEDs out of it because they were too bright for my tastes.

Hmm, actually I only need a good 80mm case fan now, since I already own the SilverStone FN122 case fan, any good suggestion? :)

Im not 100% sure but I dont think 400fsb is any good for a p5b-deluxe (360-401 no good) unless they fixed it.
425 is nice though :)

Thats good,
It was something about the strapping and the northbidge being incredibly overclocked in that range ,but if it works now, saul gud
