I had a quick look at the Evga X58 Review, in particular the BIOS Settings, there sure seems to be quite a few settings to tweak...hope its not too complicated, this E8400 was really only a matter of upping vCore, small up to MCP and SPP Voltage and changing the FSB, that was it....
I'm right now @ 3.6, and getting load temps of around 74ish. And yeah, I think the 120 would be better, (I believe it's Thermalright) since I had it for a while and my temps were pretty good @ 4. It's just it didn't fit in my case, that's why I had to exchange it for the Ultima.
