You could always go with the good 'ol T.R.U.E. But I'm seeing a lot of people recommending the OCZ Vendetta 2 these days.

You can hit 3.1 on the stock cooler. You will make due with a Zalman 9700 if you just want 3.4Ghz.

I don't think the chip will go much higher without a good mobo and RAM.

I just got a Xigmatek HDT-S1284 for 36.99 with free shipping from Newegg. It rocks lowered my temps nicely. Also, according to some reviews it beats out the TRUE and the Tuniq Tower

I also have a xigmatek HDT-S1283, its right on par with the TRUE in most cases, and you won't have to lap it to get its full potential. (Actually, DONT lap it, its too easy to kill)

I just searched that, and its a fan, not a heatsink.

Edit: NVM, plus its $44 plus $7 for shipping.
