I got a Phenom II x4 960T unlocked to 6 cores and runs rather hot..I have a Thermaltake heatsink and fan but it's not keeping it cool enough so right now I have a fan blowing into the case to help keep it cooled not overclocking it any because of the heat problem

Can anyone suggest a better fan and heatsink?

I would recommend looking at

The Xigamtek Aegir is very good, but a bit pricey. Also I'd take a look at the Thermaltake Frio

what exact model do you have? also your case (for room) and budget.

My heatsink and fan is the thermaltake TR2 R1 Tt and my case is a midsize ATX tower ram cpu and power supply are fairly close to each other

Mobo ASUS M4A785-M
RAM PC-6400 4GB 800 mhz
PSU is Thermaltake Tough Power Grand 650W 80 Plus Gold Certified

that's not a great cooler, in fact if i recall hardwaresecrets stating it performed the same as a stock cooler.

some budget coolers to check out are the
cooler master hyper 212+
xigmatek loki
cooler master tx3

all are under $30 and the cm 212+ is the best of those three although after rebate the loki is $5 on newegg. they all should fit and I ccan recommend even more expensive units if needed but the 212+ has great performance for your dollar.

Ok which others would you suggest.. I really hate have to have my fan blowing into the case and would like to be able to put the side back on the case..
