Hi, I know this CPU isn't disponible but some people on the forum told me I was better wait for this CPU which is priceless than the i7. I need to know how much money I spend in my computer and, with almost no experience in that, I can't say what's the regular fan needed for a "normal" overclocked CPU. I want to notice that I'm not a big crack or whatever, I just do it to get more for my money and, eventually, for the fun if it doesn't screw my computer ><.

Edit: What I ask is an estimation for a "good" cooler.
