I manage to OC my AMD Phenom II X4 940 to 3.7GHz on 1.42V... The only thing is that my temps hit 58C+ during OCCT stress program.
I have heard many good things about the Prolimatech Megahalems cooler that it has tickled my ear....
Would I see much improvement on my temps if I go with a Prolimatech Megahalems cooler?
Any feedback will be appreciated...

Truthfully, if I were in your position, I wouldn't really see the need for a new cooler if you're hitting like mid 60's in a stress test. Unless all you do stresses your CPU similarly to the OCCT stress test, you should be fine :-\
I would say it's possible that the CCF is seated incorrectly in some way for that review. It is definitely not that much worse than the other three coolers there. I also am not familiar with the site that did the review.
Check out Frostytech for boatloads of heatsink reviews. On their charts, the CCF is a top competitor, and I trust them more.
