I waiting for my Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 to arrive with my Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L motherboard. I think I'm going to try my hand at overclocking for the first time. A bit scary, but what the heck. I still need to get a cooler and all that, but there are so many choices it's overwhelming. I really don't want to fool with water cooling and want to stick with air. I saw this cooler on Newegg and it got pretty good reviews. Will this do the trick, or is there a better one I should consider? BTW, I'm going to be putting it into a Coolmaster Stacker 830 case, which is pretty big.
Everything is a pain to install.....all coolers basically have that problem
The TX2 is a pain to install, they all are, so you'll have to take your mobo out big deal, if you don't want a pain I suggest not doing it
The mobo will be out already because I'm building from scratch. From reading the reviews, I was under the impression the AC Freezer Pro had problems whether the mobo was in or out. Maybe I read it wrong.
It does have slight problems, mainly it is just hard to get the pins in (it needs more pressure than feels comfortable) but its worth it.
Everyone I know loves the Freezer 7 Pro, it cools great
