    Read an interesting article on toms http://tomshardware.co.uk/2006/05/10/dual_41_ghz_cores_uk/

    where they OC a 2.6ghz pentium D to 4ghz and it runs stable.
    now I imagine some of the hardcore oc'ers out there will probs be able to push this higher with water cooling etc.

    but i was wondering which air cooling solution you lads might suggest for this bad boy?

    I was looking at The scythe Ninja with a 120mm cooler.

    edit : at 4.0ghz they recommend water cooling in the article so i'll only be going for an O/c of around 3.2ghz

    an 800mhz drop because of slightly inferior cooling?

    I have mine at 3600mhz on stock cooling, get an arctic freezer 7 pro (they are cheap) and I dont think 3.8 would be much of a problem. In fact I have had 3.8on stock but the fan speed went quite high and I cant stand noise.
