I was thinking about picking one up, is it possible to reach 3.8ghz-4.0ghz Phenom II 965 C2 140W with a good temp?

You might get up to 3.8 since you have a C2 revision. But you'll never know until you try. I have the same cpu cooler too, but haven't use it yet. Plan to get a new build with a new chip. Good luck!

I can go 3.8 on my 955 without problems. If you have a good ambient temp, maybe get push pull setup and you should get 4.0

You have the C3 revision of the 955 correct?

I am currently using the Dark Knight with the default AMD mounting (cooler facing video card). I have excellent temperatures. My ambient temperature is usually around 22-24°C and coretemp usually is at about 1°C more than my ambient. So, 23-25°C. Not bad.

I also have the option to get the corsair h50...but i wouldn't mind saving $ on the dark knight if they will be around the same performance.

You'll definitely get at least 3.8 (4ghz, just maybe but unlikely), if you can keep the chip stable (which for me is hard since you need INSANE voltages). At 3.834ghz my Phenom II x4 965 C2 temperatures max out at just 47 degrees

I have a Q6600 at 3.6GHz on 1.41v with the Dark Knight's older brother the S1283. Basically the same cooler, but the Dark Knight moves more air. The Dark Knight is perfect for anyone that plans on running reasonable volts. If you want to go beyond the 1.45-1.50v range, then look into water cooling. But honestly, it's not worth the extra $$ to get another 100-300MHz. The Dark Knight will satisfy you don't worry

Considering your overclock is about 550mhz higher than mine and you have slightly more voltage, those temps seem quite accurate to me
