I just got a new gaming rig and am looking to do some overclocking. I have a Core i7 2600k and am planning on overclocking to somewhere around 4.5ghz or so. So what Cooler is able to handle that at comfortable below ceiling level temperatures and is under $40?
I have a i5 2500K @ 4.2 and 1.33V. Runs 3degrees C above ambient at idle. 20 deg. C rise at full load.
I Lied , 1.29V. Runs 7 degrees C above ambient at idle. 34 deg. C rise at full load.
30 Deg C Idle, 57 Deg C Load.
