|I'm looking for a heatsink that will let me safely overclock my e8400 to 3.6GHz or so. I've read a lot of reviews that say this speed is even possible on the stock heatsink, but even at idle my core temps are close to 60C with the stock heatsink.|
The popular choice seems to be the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro 92mm Fan. It is cheap and apparently works quite well.
Looking around, it seems that the following also get good reviews and are about the same price:
-XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
-MASSCOOL 8WA741 92mm Ball CPU Cooler
-Rosewill RCX-Z775-EX 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Does anyone know if any of these will have trouble fitting on my ga-ep45-ud3p board?
Any other comments on the above list?
I'll probably go with the freezer 7 pro, unless there is a compelling reason to select one of the other 3.
PS: Height shouldn't be an issue as I have 15+ CM from the motherboard to my case side.
