Default heatsink

so, i'm doing a new build with the phenom II x4 955 BE and because of this things unlocked multiplier i wanted to get a heatsink that will let me do some pretty heavy overclocking (say 1 GHz at a minimum) any recommendations?
here are some i've been looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103055
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118046
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233029

it'd be nice if it had a blue LED but thats not a priority.

thanks for your help

Out of the ones you posted, the V8 is definitely the best choice. In fact, it's one of the best ones on the market right now.
