Well, as the title suggest, I am preparing to buy my first CPU cooler. I built my first computer back in January and it has been running great. Now I'm looking to getting into some overclocking and more advanced concepts. I know that for overclocking it's pretty much a necessity to have an after market CPU cooler, so I come seeking advice.
First, is there a difference between a Heatsink and a CPU cooler? I hear these terms a lot, but don't know if there's a difference.
Second, I seem to remember being interested in buying a Dark Knight a while back. I know it would look great and fit with my current set up, but I don't know if it's what I need or not. Any opinions on it?
Any other advice/tips would be greatly appreciated! I'm just a noob.
EDIT: Also, before I even get started on anything more advanced, I'd like to make sure things are running fairly smoothly to begin with. I recently got CPUID Monitor, yet I don't really know what temperatures/values everything is supposed to be at anyway.
Here's a shot of my last check. Does everything look okay? What things should I really keep an eye out for? I've heard core temperature, for instance, is more significant that CPU temperature. Again, any help is greatly appreciated. Just trying to learn as much as I can.
