I ordered a 2500 Barton today from NewEgg retail, so I will get the stock HSF. What is the best HSF I can get that is quiet, but that will allow to me overclock as well?

Well if you want to do some extensive OCing i would suggest.. SLK-800, TOrnado 80mm, Rheobus. With a Rheobus, you wont have to worry about noise, you have the control at your finger tips. ;)

i have an slk-800 with a variable speed 80mm fan
works great

got my 2500 to like 2.2ghz couldn't go much higher cause my chipset/motherboard was holding me back
and my temps were only like 40c even tho the fan was low rpm and it was hot in the room

Wow, that SLK-800 is pricey... add a fan and your getting close to an Intel CPU price!

OK, what are some "economical" solutions for a moderate overclock?

An SK 6+ w/ an 80mm 45CFM+ fan would do the trick and the SK-6+ can be had for $9.99 at SVC.com I'm using one plus a Sunnon 50.2 CFM 80mm fan and my Temps under full load (eg Prime 95 + 3d mark looped) are 50C w/ a case temp of 30C, this is a fairly cheap way to get decent temps, I'm kinda tempted to get an Sk7 or SLK800 and a slower more quiet fan though, even if it's 10-20 more dollars the sunnon fan is kinda loud

Yup, love this setup. Dial the fan right where you need it.
