Default How much cooling to make a 2500+into a 3200+

From what i have read i assume the stock cooler on the 2500+will not be able to cool the processor efficiently at 3200+ speeds.

What cooler would do this adequately(sp?) I was thinking of the volcano 12 but thats 45$ (still cheaper than buying a 3200+)


Q6600 G0 @ 3.80ghz
MCR-320-->Dtek Fuzion V2-->Dtek Fuzion GFX2-->Swiftech MCP-655-->
Asus P5K deluxe
4x1gb Crucial Ballistix @ 846mhz 5-5-5-15
3x 250gb HDDs
Hiper 580w
Coolermaster 690 w/ water cooling mods

I did it with a pitiful $28 cooler and it was fine.

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz

the stock cooler is high quality and will be fine with that overclock. to get that speed stable you might have to bump you voltages up just a bit. read the customer reviews on newegg to see what settings to use
