WR2 a c 90 B Homebuilt system July 21, 2010 12:15:20 AM There are 2 benefits. (1) It will cool the CPU better at stock speeds. (2) If/when you decide to overclock your CPU you'll get better results - a higher oveclock at cooler temps. Best solution WR2 a c 90 B Homebuilt system July 21, 2010 12:17:26 AM Share The flip side is the stock cooler is free. And adding a $30 cpu cooler to a $60 cpu isn't that good a value for the $$ spent. cosmicharlie July 21, 2010 8:38:46 PM I agree with your previous post...probably not worth it since I don't plan to OC. WR2 I really appreciate your help the last week!! You have helped in so many ways. I would love to repay you somehow. I have whole library full of live concerts if your interested.

Any Hootie and the Blowfish? cosmicharlie July 23, 2010 12:58:22 AM Probably not, but I'll look when I get my other system up and running. I literally have hundreds of concerts on file. I'll send you an IM when I get going. cosmicharlie July 23, 2010 12:58:46 AM Best answer selected by cosmicharlie. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
