What kind of cooling can I look for for under $40? I am looking at the cogage true spirit, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
What kind of overclock would I be looking at stably, and is their better cooling in that price range? Also what is the optimum core clock for a 1055t? And what kind of cooling would I be looking at to attain it. What sort of performance increase would I see in cpu intensive programs? Will my seagate barracuda, 4gb of ddr3 1600, and my 5770 bottleneck my cpus performance in say, a cad program? Thanks!
I'm looking for a cooler myself for this chip.
I picked it up a couple days ago and using the auto tune function on my mb i reached 3.25GHz with the stock cooler. Temps were running about 45C. You can overclock this bad boy easy with the stock cooler so that it is equal to the 1090t @ stock.
I can't help you out with the bottleneck question though.
