Hello Miighty OC'ing gurus of Tom's Hardware!

Okay, here's the deal: I just upgraded to a C2Q 9550 from a Pentium e2160. I want to get a third party air cooler so I can push it in OC'ing. The smaller stock cooler isn't going to cut it.

I have a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R motherboard, and I have a exhaust tunnel and fan on the side of my case above the processor. What would you silicon-blooded fellows suggest I buy for a third party cooler that will definitely fit my motherboard?

I was considering the Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer. Here is a link to it on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What do you gents think?

Thanks for the link, but I already read the reviews there. That's why I was thinking about the Sunbeam cooler, but I'm not sure if it will fit. So I guess my main question is, has anyone tried this cooler with the same motherboard I have?
