Not looking for water coolers atm, so any air cooler out there to do the job??

I have, AMD AM3+ Phenom X2 560
Gigabyte 880ga ud3h
NZXT 210 Elite

And after doing a little research, I have found 2 contenders

Scythe Mugen 3 on Ebay

thank you
I would say save up for something like this :

your cpu OC'd probably cant even compare with an intel i3 or i5 stock. But if you really want to overclock it Im sure a hyper 212+ would cool sufficiently, and is alot cheaper, or kuhler620 which is 39.99 AR from ncix/memoryexpress
