Default Finding a nice AMD939 Fan/Heatsink

hey guys maybe you can help me find a nice fan/heatsink for my processor. im getting this processor:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 1GHz FSB 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103562

Ive heard you can overclock it to pretty nice speeds, but you need a good heatsink/fan. im looking on newegg and im not seeing any compatable with the x2 series, but im assuming it will fit if it says its compatible with a regular AMD 64 chip.

so heres my criteria for what i want: i was thinking about getting something like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106044

and attatching 2 Blue LED fans to it.

however ive been hearing good things about the smaller zalman fans as well.

i want to (learn how to) overclock my processor as much as possible. anyone have any suggestions?


also: gfx card overclocking. is it worth it/easy to do?

In my opinion I dont think its worth it unless you want to show off your benchmark scores

how fast do you think i could get my processor to go with that zalman fan?

also, how quiet are those zalman fans? i read on xbit that they can get pretty loud.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131530

but if theres a better choice for overclocking let me know.

what about motherboards do i need to look for to know its better for overclocking? in other words what about the motherboard makes the overclocking better?
