Q6600 OC - which cooler to get?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'll keep things short.
My friend is in the process of building new build : Q6600 revision G0(SLACR) , Asus P5K-E , 2x2GB Elpida 800Mhz DDR2 RAM,Njoy 500W PSU,and a cooler,not sure which one yet
Options:
The options are two.I'm looking for the one with a better bang for the buck and of course,the one that'll suffice his needs
1)Two available coolers with prices in my country:
Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 - 30 BGN = 20 USD
Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro - 60BGN= 40 USD
I've found this review of the Freezer 13 Pro.It's a temperature test using an i7-860 @ 3.3Ghz with stock voltage : Click
There is the Freezer 13 in this review too,only 1 C hotter delta.
Needs:
Q6600 G0 revision(runs stock voltage @ 1.22V) that'll be OC'ed to 3.2Ghz(wanted 100%) and maybe 3.5Ghz(if it's possible).If we guess the chip will be average,yet a good one,afterall G0 revision, it'll require 1.27-8V for 3.2Ghz and 1.35-7V for 3.5Ghz .Correct me if i'm wrong.Will this coolers both be enough to keep the CPU under the limits?(73C for G0)

The 73C number you mention is measured by cutting a groove into the top of the heat spreader and then you have to solder a thermocouple to the geometric center of the IHS. If you don't intend to hack up your CPU like this to accurately measure this temperature then you can ignore this Intel spec. That number was only intended for system builders that have the appropriate hardware to measure it.

For end users, the maximum safe core temperature for these CPUs is 100C. Keep it under that temperature and your CPU will be running within spec. When overclocking, you will be forced to run way under that temperature so you can maintain 100% stability.
