    I have:
    E8400
    NZXT 921 Guardian Case(Mid tower)
    UD3R Motherboard
    I plan to overclock the cpu to about 3.8GHZ as long as it is stable. I need a relatively cheap hsf for it. I do not know if they push pins are that good, because don't they after few removals of the heatsink become loose? I guess I want a bracket for the hsf also. Recommend me a good bracket and hsf.

    You're not going to remove the heatsink very often. Who cares if the pins wear out?
