Zalman CNPS9700LED (with i7 mounting bracket).

Usually idle around 35C, load at 50C or so. Prime95 small fft it gets to about 80C. Don't get scared, they run hotter than the C2D. I had an E6700 too, never overclocked it though.

Running a COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520. I am pretty impressed with it so far. Also it is smaller than most high-performance air coolers only with 92mm fans so the size is not so much an issue. I am running a very slightly OC'd core i7-920 at 3.2Ghz currently. Temps are about 37-40C idle and 71C max at load. The max I determined by running LinX overnight and this is as high as it got. For general computing and game playing it may get as high as mid 60's but no more. See link below to see the cooler I purchased.

The awesomely cheap Freezer 7 Pro. My RAM is holding back my cpu overclock so this modest cooler is fine. Idle around 32c / 51c w/ Orthos.

I use the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme ,I had a Zalman 9700 which was good but the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme was just a little better IMO if you are going to do some heavy overclocking.

lol@warm smelly pee


I've been using my trusty ultra 120e (with penny mod), ac mx-2 paste, and a quiet 60cfm fan. Does the job like a pro and doesn't make me want to stab my ears

Naw, I keep so much cold beer in me at all times, my body temp must be about 50 degrees F. Much cooler than any heatsink fan alone.
