Im not sure how good that CPU cooler is, but i got a Cooler Master 212 Plus for my Intel 930 and dang it does a good job keepin it cool. My 930 is overclocked to 3.0Ghz whicj i know it isnt much but good enough for me, and it idles around 27C and gets no higher than 52C at full load using prime95. But i used a different fan than what it comes with the fan is a Delta AFC1212DE-PWM 120mm Case Fan connected to an ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard.
