    Recommended heatsink for overclocking e6300

    hi all im planning to purchase a upgrade for my rig at the moment.

    Im planning to get a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4 with a e6300.

    can anyone recommend a good heatsink/fan for this. I do want to overclock it however i need the heatsink/fan to be quiet also.

    Thanks

    Depends how much money you have, a few ideas would be:

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro - £15
    or
    Scythe Inifinity £30ish
    or
    Thermaltake Ultra 120 £quite expensive + a fan

    Will i still be able to overclock with this heatsink yet maintain a okish temp like say 50 degrees?

    I had a look at this, it has no fan?

    Impossible to say. It depends on the CPU and how much extra voltage it needs to hit the required overclock.

    Buy a fan

    For around £10, the AC7 is absolutely brilliant. You can't go wrong...

    Definately go with the scythe infinity or ninja revB (£28-30).
    You'll need a 120mm fan if overclocking though.

    Fans: Sharkoon Golf Ball 1000 120mm fans or Nexus/Yate Loon 120mm fans. (£7-£9)

    Another vote for the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro - cannot be touched for the money.

    Check out the current Custom PC they have a LAB test of 22 different HSFs and the Sythe Infinity does very well - but the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro does better in their tests and for less money.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    I bought the Scythe infinity over the weekend.

    Using it on my overclocked E4300 (@2.7Ghz), and its bought temps down 15c from the standard intel cooler, under load.

    And the fan it comes with reasonably quiet too.
    got it for £28.

    Thermalright Ultra 120 is the best cpu cooler you can get, providing you get a fan with it.
