    Ok.. I decided to add a nice new heatsink and fan onto my proc. Im going to order some Artic 5 Thermal paste, do I need a thermal pad too? Heres the heat sink and fans http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/cpu-aer-02.html
    It comes with 2 free fans so im not gonna order any just the paste. Comments suggestions? Better deals? Thanks :D

    I hope you check the decibel[db] ratings for the fans before you order as its going to sound like a vaccumm cleaner if they are overly loud.

    Jeez....yea, that'll be fine, I was just looking at that heatsink the other day, it's gigantic....it should cool fine, the only thing I could imagine being better than that is watercooling or a peltier setup.
