What Heatsink do you use to keep your Quad cool? I was having some real issues using the stock cooler till I put on my Big typhoon then the heat settled down.

As of right now, the stock dell aluminum heatsink. It sucks.

Usually they have a nice heatpipe setup, but for whatever reason the machines that ship with c2x get the aluminum pos. I will probably swap in a heatpipe soon...

I would suggest a Thermalright heatsink. They make some really exceptional heatsinks.
