Default Recommend a HSF for my Q6600 G0. I want to start overclocking like a big boy.

What the title says. I'm currently using the stock HSF. I set the FSB to 333mhz so I have 9x333 for 3.0ghz and my idle temps were in the mid-upper 50's. Load temps got into the low-mid 70's. That seems hot.

I haven't done any serious overclocking since my Thunderbird days. It was fun to go from 11820 in 3Dmark06 to 13230 with an overclock to 3.0ghz and I'm sure with proper cooling I could get a lot more out of that CPU.
