Not even the TRUE will do what you're wanting to do. If your ambient is 30C then your CPU isn't going to get much cooler than 35C or so idle, and that will go up when overclocked. Same thing for load temps, not gonna happen with a high ambient like that. Personally, I'd wait to get a Xig, but that's just me.

the only good cooler that i can find is the true black but and it's priced at $66. i can only have $60 for my budget, and still need to buy a good fan for it. but i can ask mom $10, and that's just the limit of my budget.
so i came a list of hsf that are pretty decent for my budget, that are available.
$40 cm hyper 212
$42 cm n520
$45 cm n620
$24 ac freezer 64 pro
there are a lot of zalmans available, but they're so expensive.
$24 ocz vanquisher
my goal is for my cpu to reach 3ghz (stock 2.2ghz), with idles of 30c and loads not going above 45c. my ambient temp is 30c. and i may wanna use it for 24/7 folding.
are those hsf good enough? shall i get that expensive true black? or shall i wait for 2 more weeks before those arrive?
i'm really dying to oc my cpu and bench it.
