Good cooler/heatsink

which cooler would i get if i am trying to overclock amd phenom ii x6 100t at little above 5ghz and maybe more
and would the same apply for intel i7 2600k but not at 5ghz about 4ghz
and which thermal paste would be the best
and what would be the best way to apply that since i have only mounted one cpu in my life and i don't think i did the thermal pasting part correct

    If you dont do it right u can just re do it.

    If you dont want to spend the money for a water cooler any variable speed aftermarket fan will do better then stock, but u get what u pay for.
