Even if you lower the RPM, it will still outperform the stock cooler from Intel. Also, fan can be controlled with SpeedFan. Comes with TIM pre-applied. 6 year warranty.
i will have to second that.
i am not running a c2d but rather the p4d (830) from 3.0ghz to 3.3
and it is performing soo well.
I am at 43C right now, and it keeps cool under load.
It was like 17£ over here which is pretty cheap, and the noise levels are minimal.
Not sure about C2D's though. they may need a better solution for oc'ing.
