What would be a good heatsink (Low noise...) for OCing my ga-p35-ds3l

My Setup:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz Dual-Core
(2)Kingston 512MB DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
MSI Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16


What would be a couple of good CPU Heatsinks that you would recommend? Something that is not noisy, yet good Price-Performance.


Does anyone have some heatsink performance benchmarking websites? I know of :

  1. forgot to mention:

    Antec 380W Earthwatts powersupply
  2. OCZ Vendetta 2 is very good, I am running Q6600 at 3.2GHz, all 4 cores at 100% using SMP Folding client plus the GPU folding client, core temps are running at 49-50C with an ambient room temp of 24C. Very reasonably priced as well. Another option if you can find it is this http://www.ocia.net/reviews/corefreezer/page1.shtml the Sunbeam Core Contact.
  3. Great site for this is http://www.frostytech.com/ Towards the top...."best 5 heatsinks" gives the 10 quietest and 10 coldest.
  4. I am using this Cooler with the same board and e6750 CPU

    I like everything about this HSF.

    The Coolers everybody are raving about are these:

    You need to look at the hight specs to see what will fit in your case.

    My setup blows air through the fins and directly into a 120mm that is exausting out the case.
  5. Thanks for all the replies guys

    The one your using caught my attention completely, because it sounded low key yet *EFFECTIVE.

    I have a Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW 1
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119077

    Is this cooling case sufficient enough to overclock?
    (It only has 2 stock fans running right now...)
    Can I do your setup with this case?


    I'm going to look more into the other recommended Heatsinks....
