I am using the Noctua NH-U12, rated very highly at the time I purchased: http://www.anandtech.com/casecooling...spx?i=3268&p=7
I use my PC a lot for video editing and editing large images in Photoshop as well as lots of multi-tasking of RAM and CPU intensive programs. I would like 2 thing: 1. Get get the fastest performance out of my processor as poss and the get the fastest speeds out of my RAM as poss.
I feel like it has more potential than I have thus far given it credit for and I would like to unlock that potential. So if my kit has the ability without spending and money to get to say 3.6mhz, and the RAM to get to 1600mhz, then I would like to try and do that.
Whilst I have been using my PC today to edit in Photoshop (since my last post/fsb setting) the max temp I have seen is 46 degrees C.
I hope that makes sence!
PS. No I have not yet used Prime95
