Will the CPU cooler fit on the motherboard? Also would it be a good cooler for my i5 so i can overclock it to 3.7ghz with flawless temps?

  1. it will fit.
  2. x2 what obsidian said, he's right. From what I've seen the V8 performs poorly for its size.

    If you're going to spend money on a big heatsink, try to get something that earns a higher place in cooling benchmarks, that's the whole point of buying one.
  3. that new Titan looks damn nice.
    SunbeamTech CCF has been proven.

    From what I heard you need to lap the TRUE to get good performance? I could be wrong.
  4. lapping adds maybe 2-3 degrees, 5 tops. so why giving up your warranty and risking to permanently damage the heatsing?
  5. lapping - smoothing off the surfaces off the cooler and/or cpu so you get better contact

    its great to squeeze the last few mhz out of your cpu or lower the temps a little but overall not really worth it unless your pushing everything to the limits or the either is poorly finished to require such things

    on the other hand i usually do it to my equipment for the hell of it
