past 4.0ghz? then go for the Tuniq.... but that maybe pushing it? maybe you might wanna get aircooling?

Thermalright Ultima
go with that, its a great heatsink, lightweight so it doesnt put stress on the motherboard (unlike the tuniq)
it looks exactly like the ultimate 120 extreme... what's the diff besides the price?

what should I look at for air cooling? and how high do you think I could push my intel?

somewhere near 3.7-3.8ghz? i haven't seen many people overclock with that e6850

the Ultima doesn't cool as well as the Thermalright..... probably around the Tuniq, but the Tuniq is a better buy...

well then I guess that makes me the first but it was the BEST deal on eBay... under $300+S&H, beat out BestBuy's e6600 for $350... I got a better clocked, factory pre-set speed of 3Ghz AND the higher FSB w/ 1333Mhz over something like a 5 or 600 something? anyway I know mine is higher at base, so I fugured if others are OCing e6600 from a base of like 2.6 and 2.8, whatever the base is, and taking theirs to 3.6 and 3.7, why can't I take a 3.0 and push it to 4.0, maybe more? right?

*edit*

and besides, b1gapl saw it a week ago in my sig and said something to the effect of I am one of the lucky few who have the e6850 model and that I needed OCing STAT!!! lol...

That's why I picked my TRUE-120 because could pick my fan. It's like buying a processor OEM cause you're buying an aftermarket heatsink. Anyways, I love it and it keeps my processor extremely cool.
