    Up to about 30 euros.

    I think the V6 and V8 are too big for my case. What am I looking for in the measurements to ensure that it fits my case? It is the height, right?

    The ARCTIC Freezer 13 fits these measurements. Would it be strong enough to keep the 1100T at 4GHz and above with good stability?

    BTW, what is Cooling Capacity?


    @red what case do you have?

    the ARCTIC Freezer 13 pro would work assuming you don't have outrages ambient temps.Just keep in mind the cooler the better for the life span of your CPU (and everything else under the hood) and that the freezer Pro is not an enthusiast heatsink, but OC'ing the x6 1100T is an enthusiast activity.

    cooling capacity is the ability to dissipate/remove heat from one element to another. measured in BTU's, In this case of the Freezer Pro 13 is stated as 300w, which I think is a bit of a optimistic rating. again...see above^

    My game machine is an CM HAF 932.

    So what cooler would you recommend for the OCing the x6 1100T?
    Isn't the ARCTIC Freezer 13 good enough?

    And how much space should be left between the the cooler and the panel of the case?

    I use the Noctua NH-U9B SE 2 CPU Cooler and it is extremely quiet. very tight clearance between the cooler and my Ram, but it does fit. Super big, quiet, and cool. I use a x6 processor as well. I don't overclock, but the stock cooler sounded like a jet engine.

    The Noctua NH-U9B SE2 is smaller than the CoolerMaster Hyper 212+, but more expensive. If it is worth the money, then I say i will get it.

    I've had good luck with Noctua, definitely a quality product.

    I also have that cooler, and too think it's very good. However....

    I think you should remember that getting a 6950 would improve your computer's gaming performance much more than overclocking your CPU to 4GHz.
