Default 1155 heatsink

I have the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 heatsink and am very happy with it, but since XIGMATEK ACK-I5361 seems to be out of stock/discontinued, what heatsink would you recommend for 1155? A 2600k overclocked.

I am looking at: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233014 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233032


Thanks.

Neither, the Thor would be the better choice but you'll spend more time trying to keep it clean. I would look at Noctua or Prolimatech. Thermalright would also be a Top Choice but their heatsinks require lapping, Heatsink Lapping Guide.

Thanks, can I ask why you say neither. Between noctua and prolimatech, which would you choose?

Newegg.com - Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler or Newegg.com - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler (which seems similar to xigmatek)

The 1st heatsinked you linked to is a 92mm heatsink, it really won't perform much better than the stock heatsink. The Thor is a unique design that works fairly well but it's fin design is a nightmare to keep clean.

I would go with the Prolimatech but it doesn't come with any fans. This Silverstone is my favorite, it pushes a lot of air and it comes with a fan controller if you find it to loud at full speed.
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE FM121 120mm Case Fan

The Noctua NH-U12P is a slightly larger design (120mm vs. 92mm) than the Xigmatek and it's proven it's ability to dissipate a large amount of heat.

I like Xigmatek. Have them in all my builds since the 775 days.

Thanks. I like Xigmatek too. Would a 120mm Xigmatek perform just as well as previous mentioned heatsinks?

No, their decent heatsinks (Xigmatek) but they don't match up to a Noctua or Prolimatech.

If your not overclocking or your only interested in a average mid-range overclock then a 120mm Xigmatek will work great.

Just how far of an OC are you going? on my 2500k i got to 4.5 with an Corsair A50 and temps at 34c idle - 59c full load, which probably isnt great but plenty fast for me. Sad thing was my first OC, and after reading for a week on how to do it all i had to do was up the voltage to 1.31 or close to that.

Don't know how far I plan on going. Apparently the heatsink isn't on well, my idle temp is 45c at stock speed. I will try reseating the heatsink. What is the best way to apply paste? What I do is put about a pea size in the center of the cpu, is this the best way?

Edit: The MB monitor shows the temp at 45c but real temp shows shows between 28-38 idle for all 4 cores, so I guess it is on there good?

pea size, no, that is to much. I usually use what would amount to 1/2 a BB.
