If your overclocking your CPU I reccomend, if your case supports it, putting an 80mm or 120 mm fan sucking air in and blowing it on the CPU, also I expect your using a cheap CPU cooler? If your going to overclock you want to spend around 25 on a CPU fan and heatsink, also use thermal paste too.

Take a look at this. This is the best way to get heat dispersed over a chip and heatsink. Even if you have a high cost heatsink this will help a little more.

even a new one could use this if you have any planning of all to maintain a good temp. There are some that you can buy that is already done for you.
