None of these coolers are overkill as your cpu is 45nm and produces masses of heat under overclocked conditions.



perhaps, ive had a £8.99 cooler (the igloo 5050) for almost 3 n a half years and its been great at 3ghz oc

paying over twice as much 3 years later for the coolermaster seems odd anyways thanks for the advice coolermaster hyper 212 plus it is :)

hyper 212 does well :D  3.4ghz oc too sweet

That chart a LIE... My bro's Stock Heatsink can do 3.6GHz on a Q9550 which is a bit more powerful... IDK why at 2.4GHz cause the Heat Sink FAN to fail but my bro's Stock heatsink max out at around or near to 80*C and idle between 37-42*C... Note, Heatsink is about 1 1/2 - 2 inch high and just as wide as other stock 775 heatsink... half inch Stock Heat Sink well make a Q9550 idle at around 70-80*C and fail at around 20-40% load lol(My bro didn't know why his computer shut down until i told him it's his heatsink too small, BTW two of my bro have Q9550 each lol)...

How a cooler performs depends on what chip its on and who did the tests. Over at benchmarkreviews.com, the Megahalems beats the 212 by 7C.....the Scythe Mugen 2 both beat and lost to the Mega in two different tests (920 and 950). If ya worried about size, ya might consider one of the self contained water cooled units made by Asetek and sold bu Corsair, Antec etc.

That chart is not a lie at all.

My bro's heatsink is about 2 inch tall and it can cool the Q9550 at 3.6GHz(Which should runs hotter) and it maxed around or near 80*C at 3.6GHz on stock voltage... People fail if they bought a heatsink for a Q6600 unless it's half inch tall than get a better one... The Bench or whatever used probably a 1 Inch heatsink or half inch which will definitely fail

Scythe Mugen 2 and megahelms out of my budget, really i was just looking for a simple cooler that can reach 3ghz thats all lol coolermaster hyper 212+ hits that sweet spot between price and performance but still costs £20 which is twice as much as i expected to pay since i bought one 3 and half years ago for only 10£

thanks for all the input tho :)

hmm scan messed up my order and didnt send the cooler

which was a good thing because i realised the first thing i should do with a noisy crappy fan is to clean it !!!

cleaned it and its quieter and cooler (for anyone else reading look for decent youtube video tutorials on how to clean fans and heatsinks) idle temp of 23C doesnt go over 35C at load plus i have it OC from 2.4ghz to 3.0ghz

i also cleaned my two big case fans (which ive had disabled for years because they were noisy) and now they are quiet enough to have on all the time and provide extra cooling woohoo

now i need to take a shower, the amount of dust was ridiculous even tho i thought my rig was relatively clean

Clean your computer every 6-12 month...

LOL, Get filter if you don't want to clean and use tape/cardboard to block those open spaces or where air is going in...

yep my case has filters already where air enters (front of case)
