Talking Could you guys recommend a CPU heatsink?

Hey Guys,

I have a Q9300 processor with the stock cooler on it. I want to overclock my processor to around 3GHz. My main issue is that I don't want to remove the motherboard from my case to install the new heatsink. I have a Dell XPS 630i and I bet Dell made removing the motherboard hard! Could you guys recommend a good heatsink for me? I was originally looking at the TRUE and the Vendetta 2. I want the best temps possible! BTW, how long do you think my processor would last at that speed with good cooling?

Thanks Guys!
Dell XPS 630i / Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.67GHz / Stock Cooling (Temporary) / 6GB DDR2 800 RAM + 4GB Windows ReadyBoost/ Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT / Samsung SpinPoint 640GB + Seagate FreeAgent 250GB / 750W PSU / Nvidia Nforce 650i SLI / Logitech X-235 Speakers + Plantronics .Audio 370 Gaming Headset / Dell 22' E228WFP / Razer DeathAdder /Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit
