haha ya true. but the boring ones only need those passive heatsinks.
ratzlaff, when overclocking, you will most likely eventually hit a speed where your rig will be unstable (i.e. bsod, windows crashing before it loads, failing prime95 or any other stress test program). This is when you will want to slightly increase the voltage until it becomes stable again. But don't just skyrocket your voltage or you will burn your cpu. Don't worry, I've never heard of anybody doing this unless they meant to. Just bump it up one notch at a time until it is stable. As a general rule, try not to go above 1.35v unless you have some good cooling.
