Hi everyone,

I have a Zal 7700Cu cooler on my e4300 and temps are 30c idle and 55c load (Tcase) at 3Ghz (9*333).

Is it worth getting a new cooler? CompuTronix has a AC Freezer 7 and he is at 3.6Ghz on a e6600. Is this cooler any good? What Should I get?

If you read CompuTronix C2D guide:

The temp scale shown below illustrates the normal ~ 25c range between Idle and TAT @ 100% Load, and the typical ~ 15c difference between Tcase and Tjunction on an example system overclocked with 1.45 Vcore. 50c Tcase and 65c Tjunction are safe and sustainable temperatures.

You go from Normal to Warm.
Unless you are going up from where you are... why bother.
