Solved Is it worth it Tags: Heatsinks Overclocking Last response: June 11, 2010 2:09 AM in Overclocking Share silvernova0 June 11, 2010 1:01:40 AM I am looking to do some minor overclocking with the Intel I5-750 just purely for gaming purposes. This is the heatsink I have first had recommended to me. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0028Y4S9K/ref=pd_luc_... cheap at 20 dollars, but worried about the bottom not being flush x.x Then I was looking around and found this beast and was amazed it won't cover up any slots, and I am getting a larger mid tower, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026FCI2U/ref=ord_car... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001KUV2KQ/ref=pd_luc_... Then lastly I found one kind of like the first but has a flush bottom and is only 10 dollars more then the first. http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Silent-1156-CPU-Coole... Wondering since I am probably just going to be doing minor, nothing over 3.6ghz, what should I do?
