You could add an aftermarket CPU cooler if you wanted to overclock your cpu. I would recommend a Xigmatek HDT-S1283. I have it on my e6750 and it works great @ 3.7GHz. I would recommend another GPU, but the one you is more than plenty and the benefits gained from another card aren't worth the money IMO. What size monitor do you have? As for overclocking, once you have an aftermarket cooler, take some time to read the Stickies in the section and then feel free to ask more in depth questions.

Well would ocing the ram or cpu help in gaining better fps in games such as Crysis Wars?

Also I plan on getting a cpu cooler soon but at the moment im thinking of leaving it at the stock of 3.33ghz

resolution i use is 1680 x 1050


I did oc the graphic card its at

830mhz GPU clock

1005mhz memory clock

fan speed on 55%

i would recommend the sunbeamtech Core Contact Freezer its better then the Xigmatek S1283. your CPU with that cooler should be capable of 4Ghz a least.

I also game at 1680x1050 on my 22" monitor. Yes, with your video card the higher the frequency the better so overclocking your CPU and RAM will give you higher FPS. I have a ATI 4850 and my E6750@3.7GHz is more than enough for my card. The Sunbeam Core Contact or the Xigmatek S1283 are both great, but make sure you get the retention bracket for it. I think its $6.99 on the Egg. If you don't overclock your E8600 you won't be getting the full potential out of your GPU and CPU.

According to a cetain website below the Thermalright Ultra 120 has a C/W rating of 0.11 compared to the SunbeamTech Core which has a rating of 0.13 (lower is better).

The site has not listed the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 which looks a lot like the Ultra 120; however the S1283 has three U-shaped heatpipes and the Ultra 120 has four U-shaped heatpipes, and the 120 Ultra Extreme has six heatpipes.
