Hey guys,

Still don't know if i'm gonna use the stock heatsink and fan that comes with my core 2 e6600.

I will definitely be OCing when i get it all up and running? Can someone give me some good suggestions? like one or two for the $20-$50 price range and one or two for the $50+ price range? And how would they compare to the stock cooler?

(kinda ignorant when it comes to intel cooling, always used amd in the past)

Thanks guys!

Dude,

My E6600 is idling at 23.5'C with a stock intel HSF.
For comparison
The low end Celeron I used to flash the mobo BIOS was idling at 35.7'C using the same HSF as the E6600, while my old Athlon 3200XP that idles at 42'C on a super duper aftermarket HSF

Something like this should do just fine, unless your going to overclock heavily. Fairly quiet too

it depends on how high of an oc you want, you could go all the way to 3.6 i think i read somewhere on stock hsf without temps being too bad

wow! with those things in mind it almost seems like it wouldn't really help things much at all to get a different HSF..

sounds like we just have a QUALITY CPU on our hands.
