Not only will that cooler keep your CPU cool, it will also help cool the north bridge chip and the MOSFET by blowing air across the Circu-Pipe heatpipe cooler.

I stay in the basement of our house. My computer is right next to the vent. Well, a good bit apart. But, my basement is always ice cold. That's the way I like it!

Take in consideration that the HDT S1283 is only $21.99. It performs a lot better. Especially when overclocking.

In the summer, with my 5400BE @ stock speeds, I was getting 23C idle 28-30C load temps.

The Freezer 64 Pro is the better of those two simply due to being made out of copper not aluminum allow like the other one. When first getting this case together I hadn't noticed the fan on the 9700 was pushed in just enough to catch the tip of one blade.

The initial cpu temp when checked was ... 107C! The copper arrayed cooler drew the heat from the fan motor away from the cpu entirely. whew! The array was what got hot when feeling heat coming off of that.

If it fits in your case it looks like the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 would be the one to get. It's listed as one of the top 10 performers here: FrostyTech's Top Tested Thermal Solutions At A Glance

To see if it will fit, measure 6 1/4 inches from the top of your CPU.

I'll never buy a Scythe again. I had one on an older build and the fan simply let go after a short period of time. That's when I went with the Zalman 9500 for the replacement and that still works fine for the old case I passed along.
