Hi all I have a a q6600 oc at 3.4 with a zalman 9700 and I have just upgrade the video card to 7870 and 8gb of ram. What would be a viable upgrade for the cpu and heatsink?

Well at this point, if you're using a compatible chipset (Intel's 40 series I believe), then the best CPU you can go for is an Intel Core 2 Quad 9650. The cheapest I've seen these go for is about $80 on eBay for a used one (which I wouldn't want to take a chance on). Otherwise they go for $200+.

Unless you're really running hot, I wouldn't really worry about upgrading anything and you should probably just save up for a new system entirely.

If that's the maximum temperature, then I wouldn't worry about it. Core 2's were designed to have a maximum temperature before failure of 100C.

But that's at idle temp and its about time to retire the zalman 9700. What would be the best cpu cooler for me?

There's better, but you'll be spending a lot more.

I was looking at these and wondering what are your thoughts on them
-Corsair h100 or h100i and get the mounting plate for lga775
-Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK

Well, if you want my honest opinion on this...

Something I should've said before is that you should clean up your computer first. Get a can of air duster and go to town with the computer. 55C idling on a decent air cooler is a bad sign. If your temps don't improve that much, then replace the thermal paste. Both of these should lower your temps. Otherwise I don't see much of a point in getting something better. Lower temperatures doesn't really do much other than buy the part more life (on what amounts to what I think is 5+ years when going up to 80C under load).

In any case, do your own research. Use Google or whatever to look up reviews on those parts, then make your decision.

Ive done that and I also replaced my case entire fans and I think its more to do with the temp with my room which is hot in the 90s and I replaced the thermal paste with little changes but as you stated, I want to add more life to my cpu. In the morning my temps are at 30-40 in the afternoon though it runs in the 45-55. I want to switch to cooling but I don't want to take the chance of having a leak but as well I want to switch to another air cooler like the Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK but I don't know if I have enough space. Even with my zalman 9700, I have about a in before it hits my side wall case fan and at the moment my ram fan is already hitting my cpu cooler

Anyone know if the NZXT Kraken X60 is LGA 775 compatible because some website says yes and then others say no?

Hyper 212 Evo, add a second fan, best bang for the buck...with the cooler and extra fan, you'd be out maybe $45. Spending tons more on say a Corsair 100 or 100i will get you a few degrees off full burn temps.

I went with the cooler master 240m for only $80 and its working great, I just don't know were is the best place to mount it. I have a thermaltake armor case VA8003BWS. Also what were to happen if I took out the hoses and then reconnected them?
