I have an overclocked (3.2GHz) Intel Core 2 Quad 8400. I'm not sure what acceptable temps are, but it's running at over 60C when under load (COD4 running, as an exmaple). I want to play FFXIV when it comes out which is a much more demanding game, so I'm worried about overheating.

So just looking for a recommendation for a good heatsink/fan. I'll be getting an entire new system in less than a year, so something that has a possibility of being compatible with a different socket would be an advantage.

Thanks

Cool, thanks.

One more question: Are these programmes okay for monitoring the temps accurately?

Real Temp 3.40 for CPU

and

GPU-Z for graphics card. Although I'm not sure what the 'DISPIO' 'MEMIO' and 'SHAREDCORE' mean. None of them seem to increase much from idle when I play a game or something though, that why I'm not sure if it's accurate.
