I7 920

I am completely loss on what kind of cooler to get for my i7 920. My rig is running a little hotter than it should, and I am still running a stock fan for the cpu. What is a good fan/cooler to get? Right now the clock is 2.6gherz, but I am looking to over clock to about 3.4gherz.

    In my country the only good available ones are prolimatech megahalems and thermalright 120.But you don't need those.I suggest the scythe kabuto.
  2. Here is a link to a recent Tom's Hardware article with useful information about 10 popular cpu heatsinks:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lga-1156-heatsink,2535.html

    I know the article states Intel LGA 1156 heatsinks but just about all of them are also compatible with Intel LGA 1366 cpu's

    Here is a link to a very good web site with more useful information about cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

    You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.
  3. 3.4ghz is a mild overclock, a coolermaster 212 hyper plus should be able to handle it no problem at low cost.
