The only way to cool a overlclocked quad is a WC setup, but otherwise a tuniq och TT 120 extream will do the jobb.

you wont get much of an oc with no water, but the top coolers like thermalright, tuniq, thermaltake, zalman, enzotech will do their job.

Ultra-120 Extreme.

Lapp your IHS and lap the base of your heatsink to maximize thermal xfer.
