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

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.
