I'm looking into upgrading my x2 3600+'s stock HSF. The little 60mm fan and aluminum base can't keep up with my overclocking needs . I'm having to undervolt my processor to get the max OC because if I don't heat causes it to crash. I'm hoping to push this chip a bit harder once I get a better HSF, any recommendations? Budget around $30, but cheaper is better. I'm currently thinking of the AC Freezer 64.

I use the A/C Freezer 64 on a X2 4800. Overclocked to 3.0ghz with a Vcore of 1.488v the max temp under 100% load is 45*C. There are better coolers, but if you are looking for a good inexpensive cooler the A/C cooler is good.

Placed a bid on ebay for a AC Freezer 64. I'll let you know whether I get it.

I won the bid. Will cost me $15+$7 shipping which is around $3 cheaper than the Egg after shipping. I was hoping to get it for less but this is still very reasonable.

Yeah, I am too. I can't wait until I get it; I'm going to try to push my x2 3600+ past 3ghz .
