For such a setup I would personally use the Zalman 7700cnps cu and some arctic silver thermal paste. I would also get a 120mm fan for the front or bottom of the case and a 120mm fan for the top or side. Failing 120mm I would get 80mm fans for those spots. But then I am a bit anal about keeping air moving in a case.

So should I be worrying about the 65-70C on the socket temp? The core temp isnt exactly low, but a lot better than 65C lol

Currently I have an 80mm in the front, and top, 120mm on the back, and a broken 80mm on the side window ( buying a new one soon, probably at the same time i order my new hsf )

Is that a Venice core processor and the motherboard make/model?

NewCastle and MSI K8N Neo3-F NF4-4X

It's bad....That's why I'm buying a 3700+ San Diego as soon as i can afford it.

Once I get a Zalman, and Artic Silver, what do you think I can get my CPU overclocked to? I've gotten it to like 2.25GHz before, but haven't really tried anything much higher..and that was on stock HSF, using artic silver.

I'd also make sure that your case is set up well for proper ventilation, maybe open up some PCI slot covers to allow more air to come in through your case fans. Getting a good flow of air through your case can help temperatures (if only a little bit), which may mean moving your computer to a different part of the room, adjusting intake/outtake fans, etc. etc.

You have enough airflow. I've taken Newcastle's to ~2.4 - 2.5GHz. Your cpu temperature is on the 2.2GHz overclock? Your core voltage on the overclock? I wouldn't worry about the socket temperature as it is always higher than the core temperature of a decently cooled processor.
