Default Should my Arctic Cooler be this good?!

Just fitted my Arctic Cooler 7 Pro to my processor, and the load temperatures are 18-20 *c cooler then the stock intel cooler (50-52*c)! Every test I saw of the AC7pro said it cooled between 8-10*c more then the stock cooler. Have I got lucky or did I make do a bad job of fitting the intel cooler.

Either way, im so relieved. It means i can turn my overclock back up now...

damn! I was going to buy the AC Freezer 7 for my build but instead got this:http://www.ebuyer.com/product/134542
but it would be cooling a q6600 for me so i don't know if it would work as well.

well my guess would be thats the way its supposed to be, i dont own one, but going from a crappy oem heatsink up to the heatpipes and a huge heatsink would make a rather large difference, i just might have to get a couple of those for my pc's

Yeah, no surprise why Custom PC uses it to overclock dual cores.

There you go, fixed it for you.

My quad is currently idling at < 30C

EDIT: Imageshack is on the fritz (again ) I'll post coretemp screenie later, but cores are 28, 28, 25, 25 with the Zalman barely ticking over (1100rpm)

I dont really understand why people would spend more money on monstrously large coolers when they can get such a good cooler for such little cost.

I was thinking about getting a Scythe Infinity or a Big Typhoon but im really glad i didnt.

24.99 for that cooler isnt expensive, 24.99 for an extra 800mhz or however much you oc sounds pretty good to me...

At the moment its a 1.2ghz oc. With my new ram I think my new cooler could easily handle a 1.6ghz oc!

So this is a really good cooler?
Would it work on a socket 775 pentium D processor?
