I am building a new system and are looking to overclock the Phenom II X4 965 BE to about 4GHz, but I don't feel comfortable with the stock heatsink and fan. So basically I'm asking for recommendations for a good heatsink and fan for an AM3 socket.

the Tuniq tower 120 extreme, Scythe mugen 2, and TRU MUX-120 are all good choices. there are a fair few coolers that are great though. best thing is to look at whats available and check out some reviews.

Budget isn't really a problem, I just don't want to go to water cooling. Maybe $75. I kinda like the tuniq tower I just want a couple more reccomendations before I make a final decision.

Here is the cooler which is hard to beat even by Noctua NH-D14.

Thermalright Ultima Extreme Black Rev. C and equip this with 2xScythe Slip stream 120mm(SY1225SL12SH) in a Push/Pull config.

I have the tuniq tower and it kicks some serious ass. I have my Ph II X3 720 unlocked to quad and clocked at 3.5 Ghz and it stays pretty darn cool.
