Default Re: Upgrading my Computer

Honestly, unless you plan on overclocking above 4.0GHz you should be fine with the stock Intel HS/F.

If you want one regardless, check out the Noctua NH-D14 ($89.99).
Its a little more than the Frio, but one of the best (if not the best) air coolers available.
I'd have to assume it would fit your motherboard since the P8P67 and P8Z68 Deluxe models look like they have the same layout, and Slaymate is currently using one.

Yeah I do plan on overclocking to atleast 4.0ghz I've read some articles where some people have pushed the 2600k to almost 5ghz not sure if I'd go that far with it.

According to Neweggs details about this particular heatsink, it does not fit a 1155 socket.

Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

Newegg must not have updated specs, above is from Noctua's site.

Slaymate has in fact had it at 5.4GHz for a SuperPi run.
