K... so my Q6600 is still running stock due to it hitting 60degC on the cores when stressed... but it must be OC damit


Raidmax Smilodon case with a Thermaltake Ruby Orb cooler...any suggestions on what would be the best bang for buck to get this sucker cooled properly?

Thx

Never heard of Xigmatek till now... quick search and this is what I found to get it in South Africa... problem is it will cost me $138.79... ***!?

That is more than all the stuff below

Antec 300 $50
3x Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm Fans $30
Xigmatek H.D.T. S1283 $32
Xigmatek Retention Bracket $7
Sunbeam Rhobeaus 4 Channel Fan Controller $20

The TRUE is twice as expensive once you factor in buying a fan though (And probably lapping sandpaper too)
You gotta pay for the best

A Noctua NH-U12P is a good alternative if you can't afford a complete TRUE

... thx for all the input... the scary thing is the TRUE plus a fan is actually going to cost me less than the Xigmateks I can get here in SA...

How so the Xig is 20 on newegg. True plus fan has to be close to 80 if ou get a good fan.
