What heatsink for over clocking?
I am going to pick up a heat sink for over clocking my i5 760, i plan to go to 4ghz, keep in mind i want to keep this computer for 2 years :) if that's even possible with that OC, I have it narrowed down to the following heat sinks

Corsair h50
Coolermaster v6 or the v6GT
Cooler master v8

what do you think would be the best?

v6gt but keep the rpms below 60-70 percent :)

no love for hr-02? plus minus in same ballpark cash wise, it can do 4 gigs fanless.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. Just keep the fan running below max speeds and you'll find it pretty quiet.

i was reading about the cooler master 212, but when i was at ncix i couldn't find it so i thought they didn't have it ill ask if they have it in stock

edit : I'll check out the hr-02 i think it was what you said lol, any other suggestion's and thanks for responding

Noctua NH-U12P

The V6GT is quiet even at full speed. I know, I had 2 of them running at once...

:P i have to agree the Noctua is really good, I'm going to wait for NCIX's boxing day sales to see what's up might get an H70 or a Noctua if they're cheap enough :) i know 2 people that are using noctuas right now and i think they're good.
