Default Re: Kentsfield/Quad-Core Overclocking Thread

Take a look at the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. Best aircooler out there!
From what I've read, its too big to fit in the thermaltake armor cause of the 25cm side fan...

It has got excellent reviews though.


Also, from what I've read so far, with the Q6600 the max of 62 degrees is for the heatspreader. I don't want to find out, but from what I've read, the cores don't begin to throttle until 100 degrees. Anyone for fried eggs?


Just ordered the Zalman 9700... now just have to wait until Tuesday...

Actually slaWter, I was hoping you could help me with a 9700 installation question (I notice you have one already in your setup). The flash movie on zalmans website shows them fitting it using the v shape bracket. They hook on one side then use a screwdriver pushing down to hook over the other side. But in the online manual it says to screw down each side a bit at a time with the provided screws. Which method should I use?
