Default XQ6700 Overclocking on Air?

I'd heavily leaning toward the QX6700 for my next upgrade. I'm still trying to decide on the motherboard also, but also I'm still in debate over the cooling. I can tell you this...I do not intend to overclock beyond 3.4GHZ and will likely leave it at 3.2GHz.

Do any of the air coolers current or coming soon work well enough to keep the thing stable and cool at those temps? I'm not sure I want to do water cooling because the next Intel chips may run a lot cooler.
