That cooler simply amazes me, i do not understand how it is doing so well. It only has 4 heat pipes and such a small amount of surface area when compared to other coolers.

But, i guess it's like they say, bigger / more isn't always better.
It's because the heat pipes are 8mm in diameter on the Enzotech. Most other heatsinks use 6mm heat pipes. If you do the math 4x8mm heat pipes contain more volume than 6x6mm.

Either way I would have to recommend water cooling. These quad cores put out a ton of heat, and a heatsink will be stressed to the max trying to cope with a OC above 3.0 GHz.

For my Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz (load on hottest core, ambient 20 -22C):

Stock HSF : 65C
Big Typhoon : 50C
Big Typhoon + Silverstone FM121 : 48C
Custom water in my sig : 40C

Q6600 @ 3.2 GHz, 1.3875 Vcore
water : 52C - 55C

I think the numbers speak for them self.... if they don't, I've got pics!
