the retail heatsink is good quality, stick with it. i have mine at 2.1Ghz easily running 50-55Celcius with retail heatsink.

go into CMOS and bump your CPU external frequency (CPU physical frequency) to 200 from 166. set CPU multiple (multiplier) down to 10.5 from 11.0.

to get to 2.2Ghz you may have to bumb your voltage up just a bit and set CPU external frequency to 200 and multiplier to 11.0
