Default Heatsink Trouble

So, lately my cpu has begun to get quite hot. I'm talking mid to high 60's on heavy gaming. I'm looking to buy a new heatsink, but am struggling to decide between a few. I was told to go with an Artic Freezer Pro. Do you guys have any suggestions? Links to newegg or tiger direct would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


P.S. My system is currently not overclocked. I really don't plan to, until I get stable temperatures.

Which one are you currently using and what is your CPU?

Xigmatek S1283 performs great while being reasonably priced.

I am currently using the stock Intel heatsink on an Intel Q6600 processor.

I don't want to be annoying. But, I really need help. I can't have my processor running at these temperatures much longer.
