It is better to get an aftermarket cooler. They are usually quiter, run cooler and look cooler. Why stop at 3.7?
Your processor will already automatically go to 3.6GHZ when needed (which is why we disable the turbo) So you already know it is capable of doing a little more than that. There are many opinons on coolers. True some cool better than others, but I did a balance of what looks good in my rig while still doing the job and it isn't loud at all. This is the one I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106142
It isn't the best one out there, but it still quite and keeps a good temp. At 100% load I hit about 53C, when playing a high end game maxed out I reach 43C-45C at 1400RPMs.and that is going from 3.2-4.1GHz on the 1090T.
Edit: I forgot to mention that disabling 2 of your cores on your processor will help you keep CPU cooler as well. Unless you do video editing or something you really won't use them that much anyway. I bought the 1090T BE because I heard it did well with overclocking and it was still a reasonable price. I can always have the option to use the other two cores later if more applications and especially if more games would take advantage of it.Edited by gabead - 10/11/11 at 7:12am
