I've tried several of those stock HSF that come with the processors, and never have I been able to get it to stay in the damn hole. /bangs head
it was a bit fiddly getting it in
looking at my overclocking log at 2.4 Ghz it gave a temperature of 42
i could reduce the temperature by a couple more degrees if i turned the case fans off low

That's an age problem....lol

nugget,

Just buy a new cooler, you won't regret. The Noctua is very expensive, you can buy two Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 coolers but Noctua is better.

Did Santa Claus give you a new cooler? If not next time don't forget to write to him.

Well, I'll probably buy one for my birthday which is in the mid of july. It will be a thermalright ultra-120 extreme with one scythe ultra kaze 2000 rpm fan on it.
