Our weapon of choice in this case was a Scythe Infinity with its default 120mm fan spinning at around 1200 RPM. Well have a full review of this cooler in the near future, but for now well say that it performs well but has a few mounting-related flaws.

I've scored 19,200 in 3d mark 06 at this speed (with a pair of 8800GTX's and the ram timings lowered to 3-3-3-10), but I have not run any severe tests like prime95--and don't plan to. The system does not crash or act funny when I do anything from audio conversions to playing Oblivion for hours; so for me, that's stable enough. My temps hover around 35c to 37c at idol (27c @ stock speeds/voltages), and hit a bit above 50c during 3dmark06. One of these days I'm going to switch to watercooling and and switch between the q6600 and a 6850, but that's only when I have time to custom design an efficent WC rig.
