Oh well okay then, I found that product by itself on newegg. But it is cheaper on ebay. Someone mentioned to me earlier that I should wait till Ivy Bridges come out, but when are those going to be available if anyone knows?

Oh go with it in newegg. I just typed in the search box on the page you posted, which was an ebay site. :)

Fenor: Thank you for helping me! This is my last question and I will leave everyone alone lol. So I want to really overclock my CPU, so do I need to buy an aftermarket cooler or stick with the stock one that comes with the processor.

The heatsink supplied with your CPU will have a thermal pad on it, they are ok but not as effective as Arctic Silver type products which is why I remove them and apply fresh thermal compound the choice is yours but you can scrape the pad off with your finger nail and use acetone or industrial alcohol to remove any residue, do not use a knife to remove the pad though.

Just noticed your last question :whistling:

If you use anything other than the heatsink and fan supplied with your CPU you will void your warranty, Intel are clear on this;

Intel does not warrant that the Product will be free from design defects or errors known as “errata.”
Current characterized errata are available upon request. Further, this Limited Warranty does NOT cover:

• damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing;
