if you want to spend money...you can put together a water cooling device for it.
other than that, i'd search newegg.com for aftermarket heatsinks and fans.
those will always do a good job.
also, some arctic silver thermal compound between the processor and heatsink will transfer the heat a lot better than the stock pads on your original heatsink

well, sizes, wat u mean? the tubing? its either 1/4, 3/8 or 1/2 i think. If ur not shur, get either 3/8 or 1/2 id say. but its your choice. just make shur u get same size for all the componenets. doesnt really matter wat ones u choose.

Yanbooth started a water cooling thread in the OC'ing section where gaara and I answered all his questions. Start there as that'll more than likely answer all your questions about water cooling.
