my 9700 that was on my q6600 at one point did not handle any overclocking very well at all get yourself a xigmatek 1283 or a ven 2 are good. and the price is right for both
HDT pipes work very close to water cooling as long as your not upping the V's a lot.

nice temp drop. yes they are a pain to put on. there are good install guide for the push pin setup at toms. but the push pins are kinda flaky.
