I wanted to overclock my AMD Phenom ii X6, and I was told that I would need to change out my stock fan to do this. I was wondering what fan you guys would recommend me to get.

The NH D14 suffers from its size which restricts where you can use it greatly, and from what i read does not offer any significant increase in cooling and is more expensive.

I'm going with the Cooler Master, because I couldn't find the first CPU Cooler anywhere other then where you put it ( Considering I don't use Euros :p )

No its international, and anyway as long as you have 2 fans on that coolermaster 212 it will do very nicely at cooling your OCd X6.

2 fans? I don't understand, do you mean two fans in my case? or 2 fans literally on the coolermaster

Would I have to make this? or can I buy this in one piece. If I have to make it, are there instructions on how to make it somewhere?

No, you buy it, the extra bracket i believe comes with the cooler, but you will have to buy the extra 120mm fan.
