Default Overclocking q6600

Hey guys,
So probably getting ready to take my AMD x2 4600+ out of commission. I have decided to buy the Q6600.
Now I have a couple questions about over clocking. If I over clock the q6600 to about 3.2Ghz will I require any non-stock cooling? If so what would you guys recommend?

Yes, you will have to buy an aftermarket cooler such as the Tuniq Tower 120 or the ThermalRight Ultra-120 as a HSF for the Q6600.

It's recommended for overclocking, so you don't want to back down on a good aftermarket cooler.

I forgot to tell you that you'll need a tube of thermal paste as well. MX-1/MX-2 or AS5 would be a great choice for thermal pastes.

Ya, for a overclock like that you will need a aftermarket cooler.
