Default CPU cooler for Q6600

Right well, from a previous post mentioned, I'm going to be needing a new CPU cooler for a Q6600 Oc' to 3.30GHz (maybe more, but this'll be fine).

At Idle with a Zalman7700ACI-u .. @3.30GHz .. it's like 60 Degrees ^^

Hopefully you'll be able to roughly judge the sort of upgrade I need from that.

People recommend that the Q6600 shouldn't go over 65 on full load .. so that's what I'm aiming for.

So i'm looking for something that's very effective, NOT too big at all as I don't have a great amount of space in the case, and reasonably priced.

Something perhaps around 30. (Although as cheap as possible! Spent enough building the damn thing -.-) I'm not so familiar with cpu coolers.

Thanks!



Edit: .. This looks alright, judging from the reviews..

How on earth do I attach a fan to this? And what would you recommend? ^^

It has fan clips, like the TR U120. You could get this: http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?W...source=froogle It steps aside only for the TRUE. Make sure you get the backplate too so you don't have to use the push pins: http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=824662

I'm running a Zalman 9700NT on my Q6600, it does the job at 3.2GHz, not quite as good as the Thermalright Ultra but more than adequate.

I wouldn't call that small.

I think you should get a TRUE if you have the money.
