    I am looking to get somewhat mediocre cooling for my CPU... I find the stock fan in the summer does not the the cpu any good... trying to play SC2 and my computer reboots because its over heating!!

    Any good somewhat cheaper recommendations?

    Why cpu do you have?

    You could lap the heatsink which should cut the temps by a few degrees

    I tend to use either Overclockers or these guys when looking for a decent cooler.

    Also, does your case have decent cooling fans installed?

    ME too.

    Zalman make good coolers, so do Tuniq (if you have the room). Scythe and Titan also make good coolers.

    So if you are a member on the Overclockers forum, do you get free shipping on everything?

    If so, that will be excellent, as I tend to buy most of my bits from them, and I too have never had any problems with their service.
