OC E5200


Can anyone recommend what type of CPU cooler to get for the Intel Pentium E5200 2.5GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor? I would like to safely OC as much as I can.

Not sure if it matters but my mobo is GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L Micro ATX Intel Motherboard.

Thank you!

  2. With nice cooling youll reach 3.5ghz EZ with this baby ;)
  3. Yes, with a nice cooling and a good motherboard it can reach 3.5 which I don't think is the case here but it will be fine for a decent OC. A really good cooler is Thermalright Ultra-120 with a Noctua fan but is not cheap.
  4. I reached 3.125 REALLY EZ on a friend build with an Asus P5GCMX that is a really tiny MOBO with Intel 945GC / ICH7. I just raised the FSB, everything on AUTO ... PRIME stable ... dilivered it to my freind and running for 6 month no fail.

    Where's the Zalman 9900? It's the highest performing air cooler you can buy.
