I have an E6400 processor on a Asus P5B Deluxe WiFi mobo and with my room temps around 21-23 C and the board overclocked to around 1250 fsb and 2.4 or so on the CPU I am seeing temps around 38 to 40 C at idle and 49 to 51 under extreme load ( Extreme load achieved by running Prime 95 on extreme heat setting and also runing CPU Heat utility that comes with MBM5. Under normal gamming conditions (Oblivion set to ultra high settings) I get temps around 48 C(as a side note my Gskill PC2 6400 is running at 468mhz thank you guys for suggesting this brand it rocks)

My Question for you guys is what is the best Air Cooler for this system I am considering this one:

I am looking at this as a purchase what do you guys think.

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835185027

and Then install two of these in a push pull set up.

My goal is to get the CPU as close to room temps as possiable with air
I want to over clock this thing as much as I can and Still keep Extreme Load temps at or Below 45C

Get the FM121 from Silverstone

You'll have to mod it but it'll be worth it.

Using a push pull setup isn't going to net you very much, I doubt you will even see a difference past 1C over a normal fan setup.

How ya likin this combo of motherboard/cpu/ram?

Did you use AsusSuite or just OC from the BIOS?

I have the Infinity, and plan on putting on a 90cfm instead of the stock 45cfm one.

My ambient/idle/load temps are similar to yours, just a little lower, depending on the +/- ambient temps. I've heard doing this drops a couple of degrees...I have the fan right now....I've been so impressed with this setup that I haven't started to OC it, just the OC on the GTO.

I love this set up and I am completely satisfied and would recomend it to anyone wanting to build a C2D setup if they aren't worried about haveing SLI. The ram overclocks great and again I would like to thank the guys on this site for suggesting it. I did my overclock from the Bios. Here is the screenshot of what I am running with stock cooling. Just for grins I used a stop watch to see what the boot time is on this system and I clocked it at 50 seconds. (Thats full boot harddrive light off nothing left to load.) My bench marks are exatly twice my P4 prescott 3.0 system (and that is with this system at stock speeds no overclock.) I hope this helps and sorry I took so long to reply.

Noctua also...

My OC is 3.52Ghz 24/7 (Rock Solid stable) ... but the HSF and the CPU are lapped.

What is lapping?
How do you do it?
How much does it help?

Lapping is when you smooth the surface of something in order to get rid of the microscopic "canyons and valleys". The point being that the more contact your heatsink has with your CPU, the better the heatsink can take the heat away.

The guy above I believe lapped the integrated heat spreader of his C2D and got some pretty good results.

There's a lot of guides on here for it. The main this is to start with coarse sanding and then move to the finer grades. I'm not sure of the exact numbers reccomended, but I do remember the guy above had a good tutorial on it.
