I am looking for a HSF to accomodate my upcoming e6600 processer. Is this a good choice? Are there better ones out there and if so which ones and how much better are they for cooling?
Here is the specs for the blue orb II:
Newegg.com - Thermaltake CL-P0257 Blue orb II CPU Cooler for LGA775 & K8 - Retail
The FX has a fan speed of 1800RPM +/-10% and a Max air flow of 70CFM.
And does anyone here have either of these? I would like to know what you think of them thanks as well as what I need to consider when installing this especially space wise.
And does it matter what thermal paste i use? I am thinking of getting the artic
cooling mx1 compound.
edit: any suggestions for a good motherboard for the e6600? SLi support would be nice but not necessary. I want it to be a good one for future overclocking too. I don't want to spend too much on one either. Currently I am looking at the MSI P6N NF680i SLI at Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK
. I am not even sure if my HSF will fit on this mobo lol.
I am looking for something a little cheaper if possible and it has to be from scan.co.uk as well.
