X-Bit Labs have a roundup of Six Coolers for the Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Processor, so worth a read if you are considering this CPU:

When you are buying a new more powerful processor to replace your old one, you often ask yourself if a cooling system upgrade is also necessary. And while this question is not very difficult to answer for the mainstream user, because all contemporary cooling systems worth $25 or higher can in fact cope just fine with any CPU out there in its nominal operation mode, then overclocking fans should really think this matter through thoroughly.

So, today we are going to check out six processor coolers using our new six-core Intel Core i7 extreme Edition i7-980X processor and will see how its overclocking success depends on the cooler choice. And since four coolers out of these six are new to us, letís talk about them in a bit more detail first.
