The 2600k does not heat up as much as you think it does, I am sure a 212 will suffice. The Sparkle is a a very nice unit, as Sin pointed out. Any actual 1155 motherboards available for purchase at the moment, or have all of them been recalled and are unavailable because of the SATA degradation issue?

What I get from doesn't heat up = I didn't overclock it enough.

Don't know about New England, but in USA every single motherboard is recalled and unavailable. Maybe small small chance some mom&pop computer store may still have them.

These chips have gotten to the point where even if you are at the maximum voltage you feel comfortable with, and are at 5GHz, they still don't get hot. The stock cooler also is not loud at all. I can't even hear it.

JPAO- nah it doesn't have too, some of these 2600K can hit 4.5ghz with under 1.25v, that is around stock. These chips start to warm up to 1.35+v
