Are any of you using the AC Freezer Pro64
? If so, any thoughts, good or bad. My stock HSF does great in the winter and moderate during the summer. I'm looking to drop my cpu temps by a few degrees.

which cpu/socket? and what are your temps?
my s939/x2 4400 used to idle 36C and load 47C (not using C&Q) when i first built it. it's been getting progressively hotter the past 6 months or so. the fan seems fine and i blow all the dust out of it every 4 months or so. i'm wondering if the thermal paste is drying out and the heatsink is pulling away from the cpu since i leave my pc on 24/7. anyhow, now i idle at 36C and load at 55C (with C&Q). with C&Q turned off, i idle at 40C.
i was going to remove the hsf, clean it, apply new thermal paste, and reseat it. if i'm going to do this i may as well try a new hsf.

i think my temps are comparable to yours, if i remember correctly. i dont have any monitoring software reinstalled right now.
my cpu is am2/x2 5600. oh, and im not running quiet and cool either, assuming thats what that acronym is

ya, c&q is cool&quiet. i didn't start using it until a few months ago to help with heat. funny thing is i just tried coretemp and it's reporting much lower than speedfan. now i don't know which is right, lol. guess i'll have to fire up prime95 and see what happens.
with c&q, at idle it drops my multiplier to 5 (1.1ghz) and my vcore to 1.0v. under load it cranks the multiplier back to 11 (2.4ghz) and sets vcore to 1.35v. i haven't had any issues with it yet, so the newest driver must work better than the older ones.
