Best heatsink to OC Q6600?
 
What is the absolute best heatsink and fan to aircool a Q6600 to about 3ghz? I would prefer a more quiet approach rather than a fan spinning crazily (e.g. Vantec Tornado).

you might not need it. i use stock cooling on core duo and its still cool. check your temps first :D

If not i hear nexus zalman or scythe are great quiet coolers. My personal limit is 20dba - 30dba.

Xigmatek HDT-S1283, better and cheaper than the Zalman CNPS9700 and Thermalright 120-Ultra.

I got the Xigmatek because its dirt cheap in comparison, It does well but I wouldn't say its better than whatever, Then again Ive never used a TRUE

Apparently the TRUE bolt-thru is compatible with the Xigmatek

The push pins on the Xigmatek are ****ed up!!!

No the Xigmatek is better. The reviewers have been testing heatsinks all wrong.

So It turns out if you have your tower case on its side a TRUE is the best , Otherwise not so good lol

OCZ Vendetta 2 is the BEST
