Cooling for LGA 775

    I am planning on overclocking my 2.8GHz prescott cpu, but even at default
    settings the cpu is hitting above 60 C during a full load with the intel
    fan/heatsink. Is there an inexpensive solution to the heat problems? Or
    would a heatpipe cooling solution be better. And while I'm on the subject
    of cooling, is there a good NB cooler out there? I have an Albatron board,
    which I have read benefits from upping the NB voltage when overclocking.
    Thanks for any help!

  2. Believe it or not, 60 C is normal for any (Prescott)
    Under full load @ 60 C is doing really well.
    I've read reports of up to 70 C on air.
    Those things just run hot, that's the way it is.
    If you want it cooler, the only ways to do this are water
    and other cooling methods.
