Default best cooler for e8500?

I am purchasing a bunch of new parts for my custom build and the e8500 is one of them. I am big into gaming and video/audio editing. I was also planning on overclocking the e8500 because it was such a good chip to oc. What would be the best cooler to keep this baby at low temps? Thanks

I really like this cpu cooler: Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

It is on sale and seems like it got good reviews.. Is the Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks still better though.. I feel like the zalman would be because of the higher rpm fan speeds and design.. Any opinions?

The Xigmatek actually performs better from most situations I have seen, and from personal use it works wonders. I think it is mostly in the HDT (heatpipe direct touch) technology, so the heat goes STRAIGHT to the pipes which then cast it up and out. The Zalman passes the heat from the CPU to the copper plate, THEN to the heat pipes.

Personally I would get the Xigmatek Rifle that you linked to. Just make sure to get the ACK retention bracket.

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7751 Retention Bracket - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
