What heatsink are you getting to cool the 165 when it hits 2.8?

I doubt I would push it to 2.8. I just want to use the stock heatsink to do some light overclocking.Like to 2.2 or 2.1.

They are not cheap in the UK. XFX is £30 more than BFG, and £20 more for the PowerColour compaerd to the Sapphire.
