Just starting to get into oc'ing, and my stock heatsink can't handle much :p(I can do 3200 speeds, but it's at 66C while running prime95 :eek: ).

So far i've been looking at the following

THERMALTAKE EXTREME VOLCANO 12 SOCKETA COPPER 2000-5500RPM 26.5-72.9CFM 4PIN (41.05$ CAD)
VANTEC AEROFLOW SOCKETA CPU COOLER TMD 5600RPM 35.5CFM 38DBA ($27.09 CAD)
VANTEC AEROFLOW 2 SOCKETA CPU COOLER 4000RPM 34CFM 35DBA ($23.76 CAD)

I am open to other suggestions, but as long as it is <50$CAD and will fit on my NF7-S (rev 2.0)

Of course, I am also getting some AS5 and 2 case fans, but I am wondering which heatsink will work best for OC'ing my 2500 barton? I'd like to run 2.2ghz stable, at least.

I will be using NCIX for all of it, as I'm also getting a 80 GB WD ATA/100 drive.

(btw, I originally posted this in CPU > AMD, but it was the wrong forum, if anyone can delete that thread for me http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=340202)
