thank you. i dont expect to go much higher than 3.6ghz.. 3.8 if im lucky

combining this with a new GPU i think will greatly enhance my performance.. gettin ready for those new games XD

That is a great cooler and one that I love using. Very good cost/cooling ratio and probably the best cooling out of the mid-range coolers, even competes with some of the high end air coolers.

About the GPU overclock, sorry but you cannot flash a 6850 to a 6870, the 6850 does not have that kind of horse power. You can flash a 6950 to a 6970, but the 6850 and 6950 are two very different cards.
