The arctic freezer pro 7 is very good and will handle a Dual-Core with a a DS3R quite easy however a quad-core as B1 said puts out double the power therefore quite a bit more heat and the Tuniq is recommended. The DS3R lets you overclock to the max with very low Vcore however so you may be able to get away with an AF7 and a Quad-Core overclocked except you will be in the high 60's which is the new "acceptable" temp for them however the Tuniq would be in the 50's instead or something....My guess is with a DS3R since it uses such low Vcore to overclock a AF7 can be done however the Tuniq is more foolproof.

thanks for all the info, ill go with the Tuniq then ( nothing better then a tuniq thought? ) since I plan to go for a q6600 come july 22nd. Also is there going to be any problems fitting a Tuniq onto the DSR3? Also when you spoke of temperatures ( high 60s ) you ment the mobo or the chips? When I had a e6600 my vigor gaming lite would keep the chips well below 25 celcius.

I mean the actual CPU itself is going to run in the 60's.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a revision of the CPU, that is suppose to run cooler. Therefore possibly leading to a higher overclock.

For the price, not really, although the TR U-120 is shown to beat it with the same fans used, I think. Some places show the Enzotech Ultra-X beating it too, some others don't. I would stick with the TT120 though.

Sora,

Last question. Did you keep the 92mm fan or upgrade to the 12mm fan on the AF7 Pro?
