Anything from Thermaltake will do the job quite nicely.

Or you could look into the Thermalright SLK948U and put on a 92mm tornado which is a really loud fan though. also swiftech makes a nice finely finished base heatsink with a helicoid design that's pretty interesting but you can only fit on an 80mm fan

if you wanted to, you could get watercooling and overclock the hell out of it
- that's what I want to do

my friend has a 3800+ which he paid $999 (aus) for, and I figured I can get a 3500+ and watercooling for less than he paid for his 3800+ and overclock to maybe 2.6-2.8GHZ
