    If I were you, I wouldn't feel the need to spend money on a CPU cooler, you just won't really see a big difference. For call of duty 4 modern warfare 2, I think I would consider a new graphics card O.o.

    That had nothing to do with frame rates HK, 45c idle is a bit high, and he was talking about OC'ing. i just suggested that he might want to consider better cooling if he is going to OC. :)

    I made a new thread on cooling as this is getting a bit messy and off topic.
