Tested out the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ On the Core I7 920 DO.
Now keep in mind this cooler only costs $30 off the Egg and $35 At my local comp store. This is all done with AS5 Large grain of rice in center method.
Stock settings: all auto except The power saver settings are disabled, Multiplier set @ 21, and Bclk set to 133mhz
Overclocked settings: Bclk 181, Multi 21, Cpu Volts 1.300v, CPU PLL 1.88, QPI/Dram 1.381v, IOH 1.20, LLC on and that puts us @ 3.80Ghz
Stock - Idle: 44c
Overclocked - Idle: 48c
Without a second fan this cooler is capable of taking an I7 920DO up to 3.80Ghz @ 1.30v LLC with a final max load temp of 85c hottest.
Pretty good for a cheapo And the best cooler as far as BANG FOR BUCK i have ever owned. Going to order a second fan for it to see what push-pull does.
Edit: Got the I7 up to 4.0ghz 1.386 qpi 1.30 vcore llc on. Load temps top out at 92c and idle its a cool 45c... Giggity

If that does not fix it I hop in a Timber Wolf and Blast it to microscopic Particles.
