    Farscape, what HSF and TIM are you using now? If it's stock, then I'd recommend a v7+ as well. It's pretty cheap these days and still does a good job. Also get a tube of Acrtic Silver 3 or some other high-performance TIM.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Take off the side, if the temps drop, you need better case cooling.
    If they go up or stay the same, your case cooling is fine.
    60s is awfull high, so I dont think its just the HSF thats the problem here.

    The cheapest ones Ive seen is either the vantec aeroflow or the cooler master x-dream. Ill read around and see which one of them is better. Which one of them does the job better?

    Got 2 systems both with Swiftech coolers. (MC462A and a MCXC370)..one on an old Tbird1333 @ 1466 furnace and one on an XP 2000+.....both CPU's rarely get to 40 degrees even though I replaced the 65cfm Delta fan on the 462A with a normal case fan for some peace and quiet. According to the pundits and from experience these are really high performing HSFs but are really really expensive over here....more than $A200 for the 462A and $A150 for the 370. (I got these when I had a brain snap and was in the bleeding edge overclocker mode with the Tbirds). You can get some bloody good coolers at much more reasonable prices as the others have said.....the Volcano 7 is pretty good at a reasonable price (well any price is reasonable compared to the cost of the Swiftechs)
    The older I get...the better I was

    From the reviews I have read the XE-Dream seems to be the best right now.
