    When I bought my heatsink a while ago the Thermalright Ultra 120 and Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme were at the top of the heatsink food chain. The Tuniq Tower 120 was up there as well.

    I bought the Thermalright Ultra 120 with a Scythe Slipstream 1900 RPM fan (I only run it at around 750 RPM's) and it keeps my Pentium D 820 (which is overclocked by 800MHz) at a steady 105F-110F (40.5C-43.3C).

    I have an AMD 6400+ running at 3.3ghz (OC 3%) on an Asus M2N-SLI. I have been using the AI overclock in the Phoenix Award BIOS. When I go to 5% in Windows 7 I blue screen, in Vista it would drop my clock speed to 1ghz, become unstable, then blue screen. Both are x64 OS.

    I'm wondering if the board just can't handle more than 3.3ghz? Or is the Asus AI overclock just crap?
