I did read a lot of very good things about the arctic one so im a little bit bummed. Can you guys give some advice for a cpu cooler in that same price range of 20-35$ with which i can OC the Xeon x5675 to around 4.0 - 4.2Ghz without having to worry about the temps?

Would really help me a lot, i was eying the DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 as it is 10$ cheaper than the arctic i will return, i was thinking about buying a second fan with that money and add it to the heatsink to get a pull and push setup going. Would that be a good idea? Im happy to hear about any other suggestions!
I used a cheap thermalright cooler for 10 years on this platform. I wired up a switch to run at 5v for everyday tasks like browsing, watching videos and then switch to 12v for more intensive tasks. I ran at 4.2GHz daily for a few years and 4.6-4.8GHz for benchmarks like timespy or Cinebench.

These chips don't get hot, well that is my experience with them. I gamed at 4.2GHz with the fan on a 5v supply always never any issue with heat and as I said it was a cheap cooler.
