    It is just not in the same league.
    You can see that even the results of low and quieter tests of both Dark Knight and Performa are still better than the CNPS9500AT.

    Check out the last page of BenchmarkReviews Best Thermal Paste Application Methods that deals with the recommended technique for HDT type cpu coolers.

    **edit**
    Check out the attached Word document, it's 5 pages of the FrostyTech cpu ratings.

    I agree, Zalman 9500/9700 is not that great of a cooler, it looks good though but really can't handle much heat.

    Ok so I got the Xigmatek Dark Knight installed, now my cpu is idling at 20 degrees via EasyTune6.
    Core temps are:
    #0 is 25
    #1 is 30
    #2 is 22
    #3 is 25
    Seems like I did a pretty decent job installing it plus the thermal paste. Now how far can I OC my q6600? post settings please

    Is memory running at 1066 now?? What tRD value?
    What temps like under prime with OC as before?
    Run some baseline benchmarks, memory, CPU , and graphics.

    yeah memory is running at 1066. I used the settings you posted for a 2.66ghz oc.
    while prime95 is running, core temps are around 41-44 degrees

    Nice temps now, 25c less, I guess you did a very good job installing it indeed, what method did you use for the paste?
    How do you want to begin? Jump into deep waters(3.4GHz) or more modest OC?

    i went to the link profJim posted about thermal paste, and i used the last method on that page. we can try 3.2 maybe? your call, still very new to these things. Ran IBT on Very High this time and the highest temp i recorded was 52 degrees.

    CPU/MCH references tweaking is a bit different than other voltages as they are just percent of VTT(CPU Termination), but for some reason presented as a voltage value.
    To be sure of what is going on, always adjust MCH/CPU reference when VTT is set to 1.2v.
    Procedure as follows:
    Set VTT to 1.2v
    Adjust reference to its desired value.
    Set VTT back to it's desired value.


    Most systems will require MCH reference tweaking(less than default in most cases), and some CPU reference as well.
    Begin with x6 CPU Ratio to make it easier to find bus/memory poblems then try x8 which will require higher vcore and possibly VTT/reference tweaking as well.

    As for clock skews, leave them for last, usually not needed, but my system needs 150-200ps CPU clock Skew to be stable at 444MHz FSB.

    I have found LinX gives more accurate results on my Win7 64-bit, so please use it, with 3072MB.

    Run memtest86+ first before booting to windows, possible changes with x6 CPU ratio are MCH Core, VTT, MCH/CPU references, then if prime is stable it would be vcore mostly for x8 CPU Ratio.
    BTW what is default CPU Vcore?
