Default Looking into CPU fan options to overclock my Pentium D 2.8 GHz processor

I am planning to overclock my CPU and RAM but need to buy something other than my stock CPU fan, because it runs idle at almost 60 C and full load up to 74 C. it needs to come down before i try overclocking, i was hoping for some help on what to get. i was looking at Thermaltake Big Typhoon, because i also need something that's quieter as i have my system in my living room. any help would be appritiated. thanks

Pentium D is an LGA775 so you can get the Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro.

I looked at the arctic freezer briefly, but is it any better in comparison to the big typhoon?

I don't really know, but that's what I usually recommend for LGA775 sockets. It's a really good CPU cooler for that price.
