Hey,
If I wanted to overclock my Amd Athlon 64 4600 (939) would the stock heatsink be ok?
Or will I need to get a new heatsink?

I have not finnished building the pc, so I can't tell what the temps will be like. The stock heatsink looks pritty decent, with the copper pipes comming out of it.

If this will not do could you please recommend a heatsink
Thanks

If you want quiet with awesome performance (or so i've heard), the Ultra-120 would be the best choice OR an Akasa EVO-120. Triple heatpipes, when i've been folding for over 6 hours, i still only get 50°C, maybe 52°C most. Very good (i do use a cheap blue LED fan, does a better job and is a lot quieter).

I'm thinking of going for either the "Zalman CNPS9700-NT" or "Noctua NH-U12F"
