out of those, the Artic proably
The Zalman isn't good enough for a overclocked Q6600
The best you can get is the TRUE [Thermalright 120 Extreme] and a good 38mm preferably high cfm [80+] fan for it

I have a TRUE nad i have a friend with a Artic Freezer and his temps are higher - but still ok for a quad - you won't be able to overclock as high than with a TRUE [temperature related/conscious overclocking]

OCZ Vendetta 2 looks promising (under 40$ @ Amazon)
post #8 of 16
vendetta 2 for that money but if you can fit mine you will not get better temps from any other air cooler

i recomend the 9500, but you need room in your case for it, the thing is silent even at max speeds
