    *insert beating of dead horse.

    Not the same comparison as a 1090t but these were my finding when I jumped to SB from a q9550 @ 4Ghz.

    I had the same cooler for a few years. It was much better at handling the heat from a dual core CPU but it doesnt handle high voltage and quad core/six core CPUs very well.

    For less money you can order this (or wait for it to be on sale like I did for $50) and it would be a much better cooler. Or you can buy this for $40 and even it would be better than the Zalman.

    i mean on the Hyper 212+ heatsink replace the damn fans not rocket science stock fan sucks grab 2 fans for push pull mount it be done with it but in retrospect the

    TT FRIO is the best choice at that price as its dual fan out of the box and both have rheostat fan speed control for manual speed settings so you can get a comfortable cooling to noise ratio.

    Sorry if my question was stupid. I'm still learning this stuff.

    Thanks for your input, I'll do some measuring and if it fits I'll consider picking one of those up. I've had the TT Frio recommended to me numerous times.

    Edit: Also, very sorry that I derailed this thread. I'll take note of all of your answers and start a thread in the appropriate section if I need more help.

    OK Jets are fun now that I can fly properly. There is two files you need to install to have the beta recognize your 360 controller.

    Extract the .zip to ...Origin Games\Battlefield 3 Beta

    I also need some backup in the air. Who can fly already?

    I think canceling the pre-order to order or pre-order on steam is a little bit premature.

    theyve just hinted that it could be coming to steam. but that doesnt mean that its defnitely going to be there.

    Depends how arrogant EA are about saving face after barring the sales of a lot of their recent titles on steam under the idea that it wants to promote its own download platform. a.k.a Origin

    don't read too much into Crazy's attitude. He knows his stuff, but if he doesn't have his rage on, it's cause he died.

    Why would anyone buy a 2500k over a 2600k specifically for BF3 when it uses more then 4 cores/threads...

    You haven't proven otherwise. So why suggest unfounded comments? The idea is that the game does use more then 4 cores/threads. I have not commented about the performance because of it. So why imply that 4 is enough simply because that's the limitation from a 2500k? If you are going to imply 4 cores/threads are enough lets go back to the Q9000/Q8000 and other older series. Lets not just mention a 2500k if you think 4 cores/threads are enough.
