    I have a Q6600 Intel CPU with a heatsink exactly like this:

    When I am on Windows, normally when I check the temperature, among the 4 cores temperature averages around 44 degrees Celsius.

    I haven't even overclocked this son of a bitch...

    I was wondering what heatsink should I get? I am from Canada, so I am limited with my choices, here is the website I can choose from, price is not that big of a thing, please help me choose:

    Lol, me too, but I was looking for something that can help me overclock. People usually do this CPU at around 3.2 to 3.4 GHz overclocked, I want a fan that does that too.

    I'm not a pro in hardware and overclocking, but I did many research when I bought this CPU and the cooler with it.
    So I think the cooler should have no problems with an overclocked CPU. It received very good reviews (IIRC)

    Did some research for you, and found this:

    You should go with the last option with the Thermalright cooling. The full thing would be over 100 dollars but it's near silent and has excellent cooling. Found this too. Looks like you should be able to reach 3.2.
