recommended cooler for phenom Tags: Heatsinks Motherboards Phenom Overclocking Last response: December 5, 2008 7:20 PM in Overclocking Share davegl1234 December 5, 2008 5:40:16 PM 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?

Keeps my heat monster cool, course I also replaced the fan with a 90CFM fan too. davegl1234 December 5, 2008 7:08:48 PM ok cheers, i guess the fan that comes with the NH-U12P is not good enough?
