Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail

Best Cooler for your needs, with mx-1 pre-applied. FYI, mx-1 is better than Arctic Silver.

Thats not going to cut it on a q6600 though. Honestly, shell out the few extra bucks and get a thermalright ultra 120 extreme, a tuniq tower, or an ultima-90. You wont regret it.

You have to remove the motherboard to install a Tuniq Tower?

That's what I was asking. Never used a Tuniq Tower... or any LGA775 cooler for that matter.

No need to get defensive. I was just looking for a simple 'yes' or 'no'.
