Which cpu heatsink is better than mine?

Some of you may know i am planning on overclocking my cpu to 3ghz and i am a bit worried about heating. Currently my temps are 28C, 30C max at idle and about 35-40C under when i play games like crysis although i bump up my fan speeds. I have arranged my case fans so my high speed yate loons is an exhaust right behind my cpu fan so it draws out more air and i have another yate loon right above my cpu fan blowing on it. I saw this fan at fry's like this one but not blue http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106123 i also think it had a bigger fan. I want to know which heatsink should i get to keep my temps around what i have now after i overclock? I read that Trues are good and then i saw the CM V8 which i don't think will fit in my case.

What case do you have, your best bet of all these choices is the V8, or if you can get a TRUE, or a Xig.

Or to be different get the ZER0therm Nirvana 120

The V8 in that case will fit in your 690.

What is lapping a pressure-mod?
Then you want a 38mm fan.

Example:

190CFM, 59dBA

Just an example, that fan is absurdly loud.
