I am about to put togheter for my new system, I need suggestion for the cpu fan/heatsink which one is good and of course cheap. I plan to OC just a bit (3.6 - 3.8ghz)

If you want to spurge a little, and want something more just in case you get brave, then go with TRUE, with 2x UltraKaze2000. It will fit.
Megahalems and Mugen2 will not.
Take it from someone who actually owns them. Trust me.
