Well as my CPU is running a bit hot due to broken clips i'm going to buy a new heatsink and fan.

My CPU is Quad Core 2 Q8200 and my socket is LGA775.

I'm looking at buying one of these

2. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arctic-Cooling-Alpine-7-Intel...

Will spend anything upto £25. Also to have easy fitment so i don't have to take the motherboard out if you have any other ideas :) . Please give me your suggestions!

Thanks

What size case do you have?

Cooler Master Hyper TX-3 would be a better choice than either of the options you listed.

Plenty of room in that CM Elite RC-310 case.
Check the review - the TX-3 goes on just like the stock intel heat sink fan.
No need to remove the motherboard.
