Quality from Intel
This cooler was recommended by a well known author, so it was no surprise that it is an exceptional item. The stock cooler supplied with the Sandy Bridge 2600K processor has been accepted as very good among "stock" coolers, and I would agree. The Intel DHX-B is, however, what I needed for overclocking. I first noticed that the processor temperature dropped 25°C after installing this cooler - and that's with it running on the "quiet" setting. Since installing, I have gradually increased the processor to 4.3GHz and temperatures have not exceeded 65°C. I think you will find this cooler will match or exceed the performance of some of the coolers costing much more.
