" @coonce: What's a mac? "
I saw you post about this on twitter. OCing isn't hard so I expect you could get a decent performance boost because of the fan/heatsink. Looking forward to the pictures.
"Just a follow up. My idle cpu temp is around 58C so I'm guessing it's more than likely my CPU. Went ahead and picked up a Zalman heatsink/fan. Likely an overkill for this problem but apparently these guys work on the newer chips as well and so when I eventually need to upgrade (on a core 2 quad now) at least I'll be able to carry it over. Also picked up some new thermal paste as well. When I get everything in later this week I'll take some pics and give some before/after results. This is the first time I've ever had to use the non-generic cpu fans. I've never been much of an over-clocker. "
