Default Cpu Cooler a good choice?

Hi I have a 6300 that ive had for a while now and ive overclocked it before. at about 2.3 the temps were around 60 idle . I was wondering if this Zalman Cpu cooler was the way to go if I wanted to get mine around 3.0 ghz. Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan with Heatsink - Retail Do you think this would bring dem temps down?

I love the way the Zalman looks, but it's not the best. It does a very good job, but if you're looking to maximize your performance go with a TRUE120(Thermalright Ultra Extreme) or the TT120(Tuniq Tower). They are big and ugly but get the job done.

Depends on personal preference.

Heres your best bet. E6600 @ 3.2ghz on another forums. It also depends on the cooling in your case as well. Decent temps require decent airflow.

Well I have the same CPU as you and got it to 3.2GHz with 53C max load with AF7 Pro and Antec 900.

But the 900 is awesome with airflow and cooling.

The Zalman is a great cooler, but this one is better for the money:
