New Cooling

The stock fan and heat sink on my Intel CPU wasn't cooling enough so I decided to get a new one, after some research I found this one It had a 5/5 rating on this site and the small price of it made it that much better. I installed it today and to my surprise it dropped my idle temps by 7-9 degree's. The Heat sink is HUGE I am lucky I have enough room for it. I haven't over clocked it as of yet since the stock heat sink was so bad but this weekend I may try and bump it up a little to see how well this set up works. right now I have about 40% load on both cores and my temps are about 35 C where they were running about 43 C before.
