Im currently using my akasa 821 cooler http://www.akasa.com.tw/akasa/coolers/ak821/ak_821.htm that costs arround 20eur, just removed the screaming 60mm fan and put instead a 92mm fan running @ 5v
the results:
-idle ~35ºC (using wcpr tweak)
-full load 50ºC!!

its almost completely noiseless! my noisiest component now is my maxtor 5400rpm hdd ;)

Nice 8) - it's even better when you get the results for nearly nothing!

What's the WCPR tweak? I'm trying out CPU Idle at the moment, which has dropped my idle temp by 13-15C to 30-35C!

with wpcrset/wpcredit progs you can activate the same functions as cpuidle. but its done in a much lower level and doesn't need a prog to be running all the time
