I have the e8500 E01 and im going for 4.5ghz or 4.0ghz, i can push to 3.5ghz stock cooling but i am not leaving it like that due to the temp. I like buy(.)com and compusa(.)com. Cooler Master Hyper N520 looks nice and the ZEROtherm Core92 CPU Cooler. Im trying not to spend to much. What would be your best recommendation ,or experiences. Thanks

Something like the Xigmatek S1283 or Xigmatek Dark Knight would be sufficient for your needs.

I have both the TRUE & prolimatech Megahalems.
Both work great.
If you buy a low cost cooler...you get low cost cooling.
get what you pay for.
Megahelms. Paid 70.82 for it with FedEx shipping. I have never seen a temp above 40c rendering video, gaming, whatever. Mounting is rock solid and doesn't have to be lapped or modded. I ruined my chip with crappy cooling; should have just bought this from the get-go.
