I have a phenom ii x3 BE and want to overclock it. My cpu currently is not overclocked stays at 36 degrees celsius when I am just surfing the net or watching movies. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks. Both look impressive but I'm leaning towards the knight.

Here is a link to a very good web site with a lot of useful information about cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.

Thanks for the link. I think I have decided to get the Dark Knight because of the reviews and price. Where can I get brackets and bolts to fit my socket? Or do they come with the heatsink?

It is a kit. Brackets and other parts come with the cpu heatsink. Before you purchase it check the description and specificiations on the vendor's web page to make sure your cpu is supported. I had to keep buying adapter brackets for my original Thermalright 120 due to cpu changes.
