post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi I just overclocked my E6550 on a Gigabyte P35-DS3L

my oc configs are:
3.05ghz-core
1744.1 FSB
1.26v

and I'm using the stock fan for my cpu.
it's idling at 32c and underload it's more then 45c

what's a good heatsink for the my price range, which is 40-55 dollars.
I'm looking at the Zalman 9700

also recommend me a thermal grease

thanks

i have screenshots below

AS5 for the thermal grease, im sure thats what you'll hear froma lot of people. I had the 9700 and it was a good cooler. Those temps dont look too bad to me either.

I agree with this, unfortunately the 9700 isn't in his price range. With a duo, you can get away with this cooler.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134

It's a decent cooler for the price. Most members will tell you to get a Tuniq Tower or a TRUE. Just matters on how much you can spend.

After reading this, I've had great results with OCZ Freeze

For coolers, this is a decent stand-in on a tight budget: Zalman CNPS7700 ($32)

Or my personal favorite: Tuniq Tower ($50)

On the thermal grease, get OCZ Freeze...no curing time and is about 1-2C better than AC5 based on all my tests. I have been happy with it and won't go back to AC5 or other until something better comes out.

Xigma, Vendetta 2, or maybe even a TRUE if you can find it for 55.

For the TIM, I don't recommend AS5 like some might, it's getting old. Newer better ones are AC MX-2, OCZ Freeze, Shin-Etsu, Tuniq TX-something, and one that sounds like T-grease....TC-grease...
