Yea I'm wanting to get a cooler that will keep it cool, and I'm going with a 430 because I'm wanting to learn how ot overclock, and i figured i could do it with not to much invested but still be able to upgrade if needed/wanted. Would a Mugen 2 work out okay?

And sorry if i posted this in the wrong section.

Honestly the stock cooler would almost be enough for that processor (don't need much additional voltage for a 100% overclock on many of them), so virtually any aftermarket cooler will be fine.

i was fiddling with my celeron 420 a few days ago, got it up to 2.8Ghz from 1.6Ghz with only bumping up the vcore a little, temps were like mid 60C's in IBT with my noctua, so temps shouldn't be an issue with almost any aftermarket HSF.

Actually I put a 430 into my gf lil bro's computer and it ran really really hot with an older zalman hsf. Have no idea why =/

I overclocked it to 3.6 ghz though =) Ran really well but at ~ 70C on load. Cheap chip anyway that I got from frys for 40 dollars with mobo. Ended up selling the motherboard off.
