  1. may i have more sugestions thanks, those seem kinda small to me sorry im trying to get on that will bring my cpu from

    33c (91f) to 21c (70f) or just about room temp

    then hope to have it overclock and peform well

    it want to try to overclock to 3.4- 3.5 ghz or what other folks recomend
  2. I was hopng to find one with a lot of heat pipes,copper base copper fins
  3. I think if you're looking to go big, you can check out the better version of the HSF tested here:,2290.html

    It's, as the title says, big air!
  4. I found a these types of heatsinks here.

    what do you all think?

    and do you think it will fit on my motherboard?

    my ram looks too close to the cpu.

    with the heatpipes on my memory they stand out far.

    they seem have a lot of area to them

    do you think that they will perform well?

    which one would do a better job?
  5. since then i upgraded to ecc 8 ram an a the new amd phenom x61090t with a Corsair H50 water cooler with custom Heat spreaders for my ram. Finally my graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB DDR5 stock clock
