Hey bro, we need to know what equipment you currently have, cpu, mobo, etc. And if you are on stock cooling, or something you bought to replace what came with your cpu. Let us know...

I would say step one would be to invest in a good aftermarket cooler. Like a zalman 9500, or thermaltake big typhoon. My zalman made a big difference one I got it installed. Just make sure to apply some arctic silver 5 thermal paste in a THIN even layer. Or you could make the jump to watercooling, but that is a pretty big leap. I know people, including myself, are getting great overclocks using good air cooling with the C2D.

Nice case. I have the same one. I have a zalman 9700 and it fits easily into my case. I would suggest that one unless you want to go into watercooling or something.
