    Hi all, Well i have had so many probs lately with my system like a 7900GT frying 2 months ago followed by an Antec SmartPower 500W PSU blowing when only 3 months old and taking my Mobo with it I have had enuff and am going to buy a new system. I will be getting the Core2 Duo E6300 along with the Asus P5B mobo, a Gig or 2 of either 667 or 800 DDR2 and some other bits and bobs, my current system is goin in the trash!

    Could anyone please recommend a reasonably priced (am gonna be on short rations for a while now!) thats easy to fit cooler for socket 775, dont much fancy having to take the board out and fix a backplate/mounting bracket. The PC will be more or less custom built. I just want a good "bang for buck" but effective cooler for around £20......$32 ish. I am of course looking to overclock but have not yet decided if I am gonna go to the limits or just take it easy on her (well at least for a while!)

    grateful for any advice you can give
    Cheers

    My Arctic cooling: freezer 7 pro did an excelent job of keeping my prescott cool, and even a smithfield was kept pretty cool, so i think it'd do an incredible job of keeping a core 2 duo cool.

    probably around your price range as well :)

    And The Scythe Katana Cu got a very good review.

    Thanks for that, I have a great Admiration for the Artic coolers having a freezer 64 pro on my current rig, the freezer 7 sounds good and I can actually get it in the UK for £15.22!!!! I spose thats about $25 US which sounds good to me!

    Slightly changing topic, not knowing a lot about Intel especially Core Duo,s, what would be considered a decent (and realistic) overclock on the 6300, am I right in thinking the multiplier is x7 and a bit of a noobish question, what is the stock memory speed, as you can guess I am trying to work out with an overclcok if I will need 667Mhz or 800Mhz Ram!
