Ebuyer don't really have any worthwhile heatsinks atm, so you might have to get one from somewhere else if you do more than a mild overclock or want to keep temps/noise down. These are two that I'd recommend:
Titan Fenrir V2 £35
Prolimatech Megahalem Rev B £45 - Will need to buy fans for this one.
You will need some thermal paste as well, something like this: Arctic Silver 5
