I want to overclock my 920 to like 3.6ghz. Obviously the Intel stock garbage wont do the trick. If you have any recommendations for good coolers with relatively simple installation for the 1366 socket, It'd be greatly appreciated. I dont want to pay much more than 50. Thanks in advance.

If you would just take the time to read just a few posts you see a link posted time and time again. I get so tired of this. Just read the first top 10 posts, you'll have your answer.

Not directed to you particularily, but to all the lazy peeps out there.

Just go to Best Buy and buy what the uneducated salesman wants to spam at you. Better yet, have fun at Walmart.

Grrr.

Lazy peeps......................

Jack - Just took a look at the links you posted. Nice to see the Thermalright 120's are still highly rated even though they are over three years old. I just keep recycling my original 120 with only 4 heat pipes. :lol:
