Every place I go though suggest getting this brand, Zalman or something like that.
And by the way, getting a heatsink fan DOES NOT always mean you can overclock, but a core 2 duo are made with the consideration that it will be overclocked.
acually if you are buying a non-ctock HSF then u well need to buy it acording to what stocket your cpu is.
Zalman 9500 is a good one but it can cost a bit more but u have to make sure it fits ur socket (i don't know right off hand what sockets it supports). No processors are made to overclock... It viods the warrenty of the prcoessor.
Processors can overclock cuase the companys find the best speed for hte processor, now that doesn't mean its hte highest speed for it. They do produce good processors which can hit higher speeds however theres some that can't so they label it with that best fits all the processors not jsut a few.
