Default Re: cpu Cooling solutions...what do you use?

Update:
Got the Black Knight from Newegg today and installed it. The bad thing is it doesn't quite fit in my case, it sticks out maybe a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch too far but ah well I'll mod the side panel somehow cause the Black Knight has definately found a new home in my computer

Ok running stock clocks and Prime 95 for a little over an hour got me a high of 51C and idle was around 33C

I bumped the fsb up to 377 which gave me 3.2GHZ on the cpu and after running Prime 95 for an hour I get a high of 53C and idle is around 34C

I'm gonna try next for a fsb of 400 and that's probably as far as I'll push it. Should I turn off Intel Speed Step in the bios and the other one like it C1 or whatever it is? If it is helping keep the cpu cooler at idle I don't mind it being on but I have heard it can cause trouble with overclocking sometimes.
Anyways I'll post back if I can hit 400fsb safely and with good temps.
