First of all I don't understand everyone complaining about the Presacott's heat. I have my 2.8 running @ 3.6 no problems, in a 77 F house it runs 38/30 idle and 41/33 load with an SP-94 and AS-5. I haven't tried lapping it yet so I don't know how much that will affect it, but an 800Mhz increase isn'...

I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't burn anything up running it at the max on my board (P4C800-E maxs out at 2.85....

I have used the ZALMAN CNPS7000A-AlCu, the AeroCool DP-102LE, and based on the opinions here the Thermalrite SP 94. I have to say with the Prescott chip the SP 94 blows everything else away.
