I get paid this week and I am interested in doing some overclocking to my current rig. I'm using the stock fan which gets extremely loud when I run my CPU at max not to mention when I overclock. As for now I am running the stock voltages but I want to push past 4.0GHz on a Phenom II 955.

Here are the heatsinks I have picked out:

Ultra ChillTec Black Overclocking CPU Cooler

Cooler Master RR-V6GT-22PK-R1 V6 GT

Thermaltake CLP0564 Frio Dual 120mm Universal CPU Cooler

Price is no object I just want a quality air-cooled system without messing with water. Also, I am upgrading to the newest 8-core chips from AMD when they come out.

Make sure the Noctua fits in your case. I don't know if your previous mentioned ones will fit, or their specs.

Im not disputing your knowledge, nor am I saying that I am knowledgeable on CPU cooler specs.

Its just a friendly reminder, nothing else.

On a side note, does anyone know what is with the 18s

I've got a NZXT Phantom Full Tower Case. Im pretty sure I have enough clearance but I will make sure before I buy this weekend. Thanks for the warning though.
