    I'm wanting to overclock a CPU on one of my computers and think it's a good idea to upgrade the cooler on it as it currently jumps to around 50C under load.

    Can someone recommend me an effective cpu cooler thats compatible with the la775 cpu's?

    I have had very good results with the coolermaster 212 series coolers. I have one on a 2500k and it keeps it in the mid 50s when overclocked to 4.3gig. On an amd system I am running the same cooler on a 8350 overclocked to 4.5gig and it keeps it <60C.

    Note these coolers are very good however they are not the easiest things to install. Make sure you test fit everything first then apply the thermal compound and screw down the cooler. You do have to pull the mb out of the case to install the backplate. Not a big deal, just be aware of the need to pull the board.

    The egg has this cooler for $15 after MIR.
