Default Is this a good cooler?

Is this a good cooler to use with my C2D E6700 processor? If not, does anyone have any suggestions on what would be a good one?

I have it, and it keeps my temps at 38-40C idle, 46-50 load. It's a pretty good cooler. If you really want a good cooler, go for the Tuniq. It's the best out there.

Thanks, I will use this one. I am not looking for the best, just for something to keep stuff cool about this price.

I just noticed it doesn't have C2D mentioned just dual core pentium, but it fits LGA775. Will it still work?

If it fits my E6400, it will fit a C2D.
