Well being such a popular CPU I'm fairly certain this wont be an extremely hard question to answer. Thus far I've been running it @ 3.0 GHz at 1.20 - 1.18 volts, temps of 35c idle and 60c when running Prime95. All has been running well for a good solid 3 months without a single issue. The time has come to try and achieve a higher overclock. Why you ask, well why not, I've already hit 3.33 GHz, 1.33 - 1.28 volts (that's my droop happening) The ideal is 45c but here is the crazy part, I hit 88c after 5 minutes of Prime95 risking doing some kind of damage I stop Prime immediately and temps drop instantly almost 25 degrees my CPU cooler is an ancient chunk of Aluminum with a copper core which would be better used as a weapon (Thermaltake BluOrb2) Now then I am fairly confident I will be able to get it to 3.6 GHz with adequate voltage fine tuning which I am willing to do but before I can actually do so I need a new CPU cooling device. From some quick research I know that my CPU is pumping out a solid 150 watts of thermal energy something my aging BluOrb just can't handle. What would be the absolute best solution to cool this sucker down, both liquid and air cooling would be perfectly acceptable solutions to my little dilemma. All help and Info is greatly appreciated, Thanks. Note: Attached is a pictures of my temps and the fluctuation problem.
