I have overclocked my I7 920 from 2.66Ghz to 3.2Ghz, but i really not sure if my stockcooler is good enough. So I like to ask you guys for some good CPU coolers for my I7 920 or is the stockcooler good enough? If not then name these CPU coolers for me please (not too expensive). I live in Europe.

What's your budget and what are you aiming for in terms of Ghz.

Well like I said I've overclocked it to 3.2GHz but I don't know if I can get any further (I have a Asus Rampage Gene 2 motherboard)

Rampage Gene 2 is a good board as far as i've read something about it, With a good coler you could easily get a i7 920 to 4Ghz +. If you want to do so i recommend getting the Venomous-X or the Corsair H50 for pre-made liquid cooling, they both are ~50-60 euros tho

Here is the conclusion of a pretty thorough test of custom coolers. The tests were performed on an overclocked Intel I7 920 :)

As you inspect the graph, remember: Lower is better.

Is the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 a good one for purchase?
