    Whats the best cooler for overclocking an E6300?

    im looking to spend around £40 on a cooler for my CPU, ive reached 2.24ghz, but i want around 2.8-3ghz on moderately low temperatures.

    any ideas?

    Good for OC but too big in some cases it blocks memory slots and you have to move the memory over to other slots, Dominator is a no go in systems with this cooler usually, looks tacky too. The Ninja etc has same problems.

    Zalmans probably a better alternative

    The AC Freezer 7 Pro is very good. Cheap as well. And quiet. Holds my E6300 @ 3ghz to a core temperature (temperature read from internal sensor) of around 50 degrees at 100% load on both cores. The motherboard sensor reads around 42 at the same load. Its quite tall though.

    Not a fan of Zalman

    Not had a motherboard that has the memory slots blocked on it yet, and I've played with a few

    Ive tried and tested AC Freezer 7 Pro its a very quite and solid cooler, highly recommend.

    Also had mine running on a E6300 i know it will hold it at 3ghz+ at good temps.

    A very strong recommendation for the Scythe Mine which thrashed the opposition in PC Pro's review (December 2006). Nothing else came close for cooling plus it is quiet as a mouse. It was tested on a E6700 so I guess that will do the trick. I bought one for £25 from Scan as a direct result of the test.

    The Tuniq Tower is the best out there, air cooler wise. But the price and size is just silly.

    If you are able to spend &#163;&#163;&#163; on an air cooler then that is it. I would go the full wack and get decent water cooling if i was gonna pay that much for air.

    Edit- From that review of the Tuniq, it looks like it needs lapping.
