That one? I sure hope so because I really like the price on it.
If that will get me over 3 ghz I'll be happy
3.0? LOL, isn't it cold where you live? I'm in California and right now it's hot! Yet, my hsf keeps it cool enough to run my pc without crashing or freezing.
2months ago I installed that freezer 7 pro and didn't work for me. I must have got a lemon 'cus my temps actually went up instead of down.
Anyways, if your ambient temps are cool enough then no need to buy an aftermarket cooler if you're only going to reach 3.4 or lower. Higher than that then invest in a cooler.
As far as orthos, I suggest 2hours. I've read others recommending 24hrs...48hrs....dumb! withing those 2 hours you will get a good idea of what kind of temps you'll be looking at.
