What do you guys think of my cpu? Any areas you think I can improve on? My cooling system isn't good at all, just a basic heat sink... anybody have any suggestions for that in particular?


Here are the specs:

What case do you have? I'd recommend Coolermaster's v8:

Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme:

This thermal paste (MX2) is regarded as one of the best along side OCZ Freeze.



These heatsinks are two of the best on the market and made for overclocking. What is your goal?

That basically looks like a mini AC unit. lol. Bad ass. Not sure I'd have that much room in my (already large) box for the controller/other units. =[.. Maybe I'll need a new box.. =]

You could easily overclock that to at least 3.0GHz. I have the same CPU and I have mine overclocked to run at 3.0GHz with this heatsink and fan, and that wasn't even a difficult overclock.
