I can give you the names of two really good ones (since I don't know UK websites).

Choice 1 (cheaper, yet still pretty good): Xigmatek HDT-S1283
Choice 2 (Best): Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme

Ya the stock heatsink/fan from amd is terrible. I put in the Zalman CNPS9900ALED. About seventy american. I got it at 30% off though. If you can find a deal I highly recommend it. It is a tad big. I have a microatx and when I close the door, I push on the heatsink ever so slightly. The Ultra-120 is great too.

CoreTemp is a very good temperature monitoring program for CPUs.

I'd use Core Temp as mentioned above. It'll give you the temp of each core.

Check out the heatsinks listed here......

Personally the only TRUE worth buying is the 'Copper' but thats 75!

I'd go for a 'Noctua' or the 'Corsair H50-1'.

Any TRUE is worth it if you lap it.
There is also a pressure mod that lots of people do.

Cooler Master V8 is pretty good too.

EDIT: the best one right now is the Tuniq Tower 120 extreme.

Also good is the Xigmatek HDT-S1283

Get one of those for extreme cooling.
