I read with interest on Toms that the new 45nm 3Ghz Core2 Duo runs quite cool. I'm planning to get one and perhaps push it up towards 3.6-3.8GHz.

I'm really interested in quietness though and wondered whether anyone thought the Scythe Ninja Plus Rev B be overkill for this cooler cpu or still appropriate, and ultimately whether I'd get away with fanless whilst still o/cing :)

At 3.8GHz, it won't be a overkill. It'll be real cool, but that just means more OCing head room.

You can run it without a fan if you are running with stock cooling.

You can push it as high as 4.2mhz with that cooler.

Yeah, you can run 4.2MHz without a cooler even. ;)

that is definately a great choice for a quiet cooler and if you want you can use a push/ pull configuraton which would lower temps even more, enabling you to lower your fan speed

or just. . . . like. . . . watch it burn in hell without a cooler. .

it sounds like you want to buy it, so, what the heck.

plus, it's good for the economy. you'd be doing your
patriotic duty, according to Pres. Bush.

No, you missed the point. 4.2MHz vs 4.2GHz, there's a huge difference there.

I believe there has been some batch where the temperature diode simply does not work. I recall someone stated in the BIOS the temperature was being reported at 222C which is over twice the temperature at which water boils.

The Scythe Ninja Plus is a very quiet HSF even with the fan. Is it overkill? I don't think so especially when it can be bought for something like $26 after a $10 mail-in rebate.

I recall paying about $40 - $45 for mine about 2 years ago.
