Aircooling an overclocked 3000+ Barton?

Hey guys, not made a post in a LOOONG time (holst may still remember me).
I've FINALLY bought RAM, CPU, and M/board that work together to give me a decent overclocking system.
Namely a:
3000+ Barton
512 x 2 PC2700 Crucial
A7n8x Deluxe v 2.0 Asus

And, since I can now get about 200Mhz + overlock on this beauty, I'm thinking about getting a decent heatsink!
Atm, I'm copying with my crappy copper core Coolermaster 3000+ (which I wouldn't want to trust my previous 2100+ to but there you go).
At the moment I've not seen anything particularly impressive on the HSF front, especially 3000+ or more...
So I'm open to suggestions.

Is it finally time to go for watercooling peltier style or is there life in the aircooling way of life yet?

Thanks!

PS:
I would have used the other thread, but that was a different processing power league really.
Plus I wanted to catch Holsts attention and say HI!

There's always life in air cooling just depends on how much noise you can stand

Personally I'm running a 2500 Barton @205x11 on air with an alpha and a vantec fan and all is stable at around 42C (hot day in sunny England).

However, from the posts that Holst has been making then I dont think that air or water can touch the Prometia (and if he'd like to donate one this way then i'd be only too happy to receive it )

No matter which way you choose to go, good luck and don't forget to FOLD.

Cheers
