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

3x Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm Fans $30

It would be better to get a Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme, they cool better on quads than Xigmateks do.

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.

Even if they gave the rest of the world their American prices, the shipping cost is going to be killer.

Imagine $40 shipping for a tube of TIM and a fan

(Heck, shipping a TRUE from the US to canada is already ~$30 >_<)
