any advice would be great on a good heatsink for my rig like i said i was thinking of the coolermaster v10 but from what i read i guess it doesnt perform too much better then the coolers that have been out for like 2 years but im still considering it.

  1. Here's a link to a web site about cpu heatsinks:

    BTW - Lapping is easy. If an old fart like me can do it, then anyone can do it.
  2. ty i will take a look threw the site.
  3. I have a TRUE with an S-Flex fan that I really like. It's relatively expensive and I bought it about 2 years ago (before the HDT style coolers came out).
  4. yeah ive heard alot of good things about the true the nonctural and the xigmatek problem is deciding wich one to get i want to overclock my cpu to 4.0ghz and i need to make sure it will stay cool.
