Default Northbridge and Southbridge cooler necessary when ocing.

When overclocking to around 3Ghz on a E6300 with a DS3R mobo, will it be necessary to buy a northbridge/southbridge cooler ? if so , which ones are good ?

No i dont think so. My temps never go about 38C.

Also, the motherboard comes with a huge heatsink for the northbridge (i think its the northbridge...).

You would only need an aftermarket cooling for the NB or SB, if you were going extreme I guess. Or if for some reason, it is above normal in temperature.

My south, doesn't have a heatsink on it, and I was able to overclock to 3.2-3.6....just keep your overall system cool, and you'll be fine.

Thanks Alot. Can't decide wether to Keep to MX-1 pad on the Arctic Freezer Pro 7, or replace it with AS5. Hmm.
