Default Re: Which cooler? AM2/AM2+ Suggestions Welcomed!

I haven't even touched my voltage from stock. Last I checked it was at 1.325v according to AMD Overdrive (just used for testing, didn't actually use that for my OC). When I take the side panel off of my case, it drops the temps about 2-3C in the first few minutes so I'm assuming it's mostly just my case's airflow. I'm taking measures to fix that, though. See this thread:
Cooling Upgrade Options
Especially page 2.

I'm also slightly considering lapping my CPU.

I'm going to do the whole lapping thing too. I've already voided any warranty eMachines would have given me anyway, as the only original thing in the case is the power supply.

I went to pick up the Scythe last night, but the guy sold out, and wouldn't be getting any more. So, I picked up an XFX 4650 1GB card, for $40, which is less than Newegg's price for a re-certified one... Tested it out for a little while, and played some games. Couldn't do much with a cheap power supply.
