hello. i notice that i can successfully o/c my p3600e to 900, but after a while it locks up. i know that it's stability is dependent upon temperature because i opened all the windows to my apartment to let all the cold air in and it remains stable in windows, but as soon as i close the windows and crank the heat back on the CPU freezes. what do i need to have my CPU remain cool? are the alphas any good? any recommendations would be appreciated. :D

any of the Alphas or Global-Wins will do fine. just make sure you have adequate case cooling , cuz the best HSF in the world isnt gonna cool jack without good case air circulation.

Alphas are great coolers. Depending on what kind of cpu you have. PEP66 for fcpga with slokets and 6035 for socket motherboards. FOP32-1 and FOP 38 are also great. Like conlan said case cooling is very important. I personally think Antec SX830/1030 cases are great for their price.
