I hope you know, the Zalman CNPS7000B, isn't compatible with the AM2 socket. What motherboard will you be overclocking with?

Socket 940 and AM2, have the same number of pins, but both their pins are placed differently. So no, they're not the same socket. Socket AM2 is the desktop line. And Socket 940, is for AMD's server line.

I'm not sure how far you can overclock the X2 4200+, on that kind of motherboard, as that chipset is not known for overclocking. But you should be able to overclock to 2.5-2.7...

I would recommend this cooler for the AM2 socket:
Arctic Cooling (AC-FRZ-64P) Freezer64 Pro Socket 754 939 940 CPU Cooler with Heat pipe cooling Pro Ver

I know it doesn't say AM2 on it, but I'm certain it does. And it's better than the CNPS7000B.

It already comes with the MX-1 thermal pad, so you don't need thermal paste. The MX-1 is better than a majority of the thermal paste available.

You might be able to overclock a little further with that motherboard, compared to the previous choice.
