Default CPU Fan Suggestion

So if you don't mind, please recommend some good CPU HSFs or just HSs. I have the stock AMD HSF on there right now but I'd like something to do the job a little better. Also, I have new parts coming in this week and I wanna overclock my CPU a little to get more juice outta it. Any suggestions?

Socket 939 right? Easy, arctic cooling freezer 64 pro. Cheap, quiet and HIGHLY effective. Kept my X2 3800 @ 2.4 at 31C idle.

Where have you been? I got my gaming rig back and I'm building it back up. Even though I still have both of my Macs (still going strong), I just wanted to build another PC and do a little gaming, mainly for Crysis, CSS and a few others.

stevemedes, thanks for the suggestion. The Freezer Pro looks great and I'll keep checking it out. I used to have a ThermalTake Venus 7 for my 3500+ (Qlitchford bought it I think) and it worked well. Thanks again!

Just wondering, I've been reading around the net and trying to see if this HSF is too big for the latest ASUS A8N-SLI mobo. I just don't wanna order it and then I can't put in my RAM lol.
