lol at 4 HSF in 2 days....

Yeah you should be happy with the xigmatek (it's the 120mm right ). If it's too loud for you (I've seen that it can be loud at high rpm), then just replace the fan. Good luck!

YES, lol. I am looking forward to getting it. I mentioned b4 that i am getting some new thermal paste as well after being an AS5 guy for years. I am very much looking forward to trying it out and wringing a few more hz out of my 6000+.

So now I'm reading about the OCZ cooler, the Vendetta 2. Know anything about that one? Going for 5!

Yeah it's practically the Xigmatek cooler, just under a different brand. They both have similar, if not identical results. Stick with the Xigmatek if you've already got it. They are the same thing .

Ok then, sounds good. Unfortunately Newegg screwed me on the shipping and didnt get it out yesterday. And since its UPS there is no way I will get it before
Monday. Oh well, I guess I can wait till then to get that extra 200mhz.

Hey fuloran, I just noticed you have 4 gb ram and are using Windows XP. Are you aware that XP can only recognize 3gb of memory space, including memory from your graphics card (I'm pretty sure it's including your vga at least lol)? To utilize all your ram, you'd need Vista. I know it's a bit off topic, but I thought I should ask.

Yeah, I know. I figured that I would want 8 gigs when I finally went to Vista, so why not get four (2x2) now. My rig actually recognizes only 2.75, but meh. I didn't see a reason to get 2 or 3 1 gig sticks now and then buy the 2 gig sticks later.

Who is the King of the Dorks? Me. I am. Why you ask? Because I am on my fifth cpu heatsink in 3 days. I have decided (and it's final dammit!) on the OCZ Vendetta2. From all I have read it cools a bit better than the Xigmatek, with less noise. I will install it tonight and let you know how it goes.
