i built new system just for fun and for "know how" overclock core2duo cpus.
Wanna show you the spec and pics.

Mb: Jetway NC64-LF mini itx motherboard
Cpu: - Core Duo 2 extreme x9100-3.06Ghz (oc@ 3466Mhz Via throttlestop)
Memory: 2x2 Gb 1333 DDR3
Hdd: WD 500Gb 5000AAKS
Case: Cooler master Elite 341 mini tower Atx
Psu: FSP Aurum 400w Gold
LG DVD GH22NS50 Black
Thermalright HR 05 FIX on chipset

idle- ~30w
load ~ 50-70w depend on clock and load cores.

Stock cooler was unable cool this beats, so i made new heatsink from Thermaltake Spark 7.
heatsink : 60x50x35- pure cooper, weight 200g
fan: cooler master 60x60x15 (will be replaced for bigger and low noise fan soon)
Over 5 h work on it.

That cpu heatsink looks kinda small and therefore loud. How is the sound in real life?

I imagine since this is a laptop chip, a standard desktop size cooler wouldn't have much issue dealing with 44w of TDP.

protellect has true, why always stock coolers for laptop chips are too small? :evil:
Jetway forgot for me, overclocker :lol:
Sounds depend on the PWM rpm regulation. When load Prime, sure the sound is like "roflcopter" :lol: ( only depend on load temperature)
When cpu under 40°C, fan turn off.
Its just only about regulation. Unfortunately Speedfan doesn't recognize well the regulation sensors.
But is not problem make manual rpm regulation , when fan connect to 5-7v.
I'm not sure, which fan will be there, that's why current is there 70x70x15 fan. Guess 80 mm fan will be right choice. :)

Wanna see stock heatsink? :lol:
