Yes, and you'll probably need a good one.

The TRUE (Thermalright Ultra Extreme) is your best bet. Thought other models may get you there also. Xigmatek and Noctua also make quality heatsinks. The Cooler Master V-8 is another good heatsink. Some of these heatsinks require you to buy a 120mm fan to cool it with

Sunbeamtech Freezer is the best for the money in my opinion

Hey mate, what kind of budget do you have?

Personally i'd recommend either the Noctua NH-U12P which comes with a fan and costs $79 from MSY or the Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 which performs better but doesn't come with any fans, so you'd have to shell out for one or two. The True is $79 at CPL. Make sure to get the right bracket for your CPU socket as well.

If you're on a tighter budget, the Coolermaster Hyper 212 is a good heatsink, it's quiet and it comes with a fan. It's good value at $52 from MSY.

I use a Zerotherm Nirvana nv120.
36c. idle and 48c. HEAVY load(e8400@4.23ghz)
What kind of motherboard do u have?

the Sunbeam might be hard to find if u don't know the full name.
It's called the "Sunbeam CR-CCTF"

I don't know FOR SURE , but I have read lots of posts around the web
that say the Sunbeam won't fit the gigabyte ud3p mobo
