Hi, I have a phenom 9650 2.3 quad cpu and am thinking of overclocking.

I am trying to get as much out of it as possible, but release that 2.8ghz with my motherboard is probably the limit.

Just wondering what heat sink and fans would be recommended for this?


motherboard: Asus M3N-HD (750a chipset)
3 gigs of ddr2 1066 RAM
possibly SLI graphics later on

NH-U12P (Noctua cooler), I use one with my 9850. Keeps my heat monster cool, course I also replaced the fan with a 90CFM fan too.

ok cheers, i guess the fan that comes with the NH-U12P is not good enough?

i'll pay that much if needed, but just wondering if there is anything between 20 and 30 pounds that would do the job?
