Default Re: Kentsfield/Quad-Core Overclocking Thread

I was looking at an OCZ Vindicator CPU Cooler... but if you have any better ideas for air cooling, I would be grateful.

I wanted something with a 12cm fan (nice and quiet), but still uses the standard black click legs to attach to motherboard (sorry, dont know what you would call them!).

Havent read up on it yet:

Great, not sure Ive read this right, but Intels data sheets say the Q6600 should operate at no more than 62 degrees case temperature.

The case temperature is defined at the geometric top center of the processor.
So I believe they are talking about the heat spreader? But they dont actually say what the max limit for the cores are.
Intel i5-2500K (4Ghz)|2 x Nvidia 560GTX TI (880/2100mhz)|Crucial M4 SSD
12GB GSkill PC3-12800 (1600Mhz 9-9-9-24)|Thermaltake Tough Power 700w|Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
