    I'm using Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @3.2ghz now with Asus P5K.

    [​IMG]
    Idle : Realtemp 35~40 // Coretemp 40~45 // Everest 40~45 celcius
    Full Load : Real 53~56// Core 58~61// Everest 59~61 celcius!!!

    I'm using stock Intel cooler now but I'd like to get an effective air CPU cooler
    of around under 50$ CAN. At the max volt of 1.5v for e6750. I got till 483mhz
    for the computer to work. Anything higher won't even go to my asus screen.. or BIOS;;
    but 483 I can get to bios but not to windows.. Maybe the temps??
    Anyways I got into windows at 1.5v 465mhz around 50~55 idle !!
    Didn't want to destroy my CPU so didn't try to see how far I can go to Windows...
    Anyways suggestions for air CPU cooler of 50$ around CAN ? lol...:)

    Can your case take 120mm coolers? If so, I have a Xigmatek 1283 on my p5k-e and it's awesome.

    The S1283 is a very good cooler I highly recommend it.

    200mm wide your golden for a killer heatsink/fan combo.

    You'd be fine with the Xigmatek S1283 Black Knight

    I disagree, go with a Gimazket s4183 Green Beret. Everyone suggests the ziggy but everyone overlooks the gimazket. :roll:

    Any high end cooler would give much better preformance. Just apply some good thermal paste like AS5 or Ceramique or OCZ freeze. Seat the heatsink so it will provide max airflow so that can varry depending on your case/exhaust fan setup.

    come to think of it do I need a killer cooler?
    I mean I don't even think I can get 465mhz stabilized...on max 1.5v
    thou my mobo goes to like 1.7v i think...
    So should I see how high I can stabilize with max 1.5v first?
    Then maybe get smaller 1?

    Also mlee49, I get no result in google with Gimazket s4183 Green Beret ?? lol
