Re: Upgrading from 9800GTX to ???
They are quiet a few HSF that are very good ,that run almost as cool as water cooling unless you are wanting to do some extreme overclocking,and a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme will take you pretty far in overclocking.I had a E8500 and it ran at 4.3gig all the time and the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme kept it plenty cool enough,with a good 120cm fan.
