Exclamation Good CPU Cooler for Q6600 Quad Core

I just got a new Thermaltake 775D CPU Cooler and am not very pleased with it. The pins dont go all the way in(they snapped) and it isnt cooling the CPU very well. I am going to send it back. What would be a really good CPU cooler if i want to Overclock my cpu to around 3.4 Ghz. Right now im getting temps of 45 to 50 without an OC. What CPU cooler would get me really good temps and is durable?

the 9700NT is better for AM2, thats what i plan on gettin soon. and the other 9700 is what u should get. the only reason y i didn't suggest that one is because its huge. its 110mm fan. if u think it'll fir then go for it.

9700 is probably your best bet.
Its the easiest to install of the best ones available I think.

The Tower 120 is hell to fit personally.

You'll have to remove the motherboard though either way to fit the new retention plate behind it.
