Well I got it running...but I think it runs way to hot, especially for just an extra 200Mhz...so I was wondering what is the best and I mean best Air cooler, or any type of cooler that will bring my cpu down atleast 5c atmost 10.

Looking more and more like the battery is taking a dump coz it runs fine on the charger but I can only get the battery up to 5%. I'm thinking I won't replace the battery as she always is hooked up to AC when she is operating it. The only downside I see to that is when the battery is finally completely gone the PC will conk out as quick as the power is pulled. Any problems with that ? I don't want to cause harm to the computer,but for her usage AC is just fine.
Reps on the way

Powering off right away is not the best thing but shouldn't hurt to much.
Just try and keep a backup of her data if it is important.

Toss up between the prolimatech-megahalem
And the Thermalright Venomous X If you want my opinion...

However for those prices you could get a Corsair H50

Thanks to all who responded. I just got a PM from Chestermech with a very logical way to trouble shoot the problem. Take the battery out and if it boots from the AC adapter--you have a bad battery. I'm gonna hunt him down and Rep him too

I'd say a good amount over your Noctua. That is considering you have good air flow and ambient temps...

You could also try Lapping both your Heatsink base & CPU. Usually gets you and extra 5c or more...

Take the side panel off that black box of yours

I got about a 5 C drop in temps when I switched from Noctua NH-U12P to Megahalems, Venomous-X is equal to Megahalems. Noctua NH-D14 and Thermalright Silver Arrow are a little bit better than those two if you have enough space.

A lot of people say that a good air cooler is often significantly better than an H50, so the Megahalems or Venemous X is probably a better option.

probably would go for the classic megahalems.
