What is the best way to cool an intel 570J processor??

I built an gaming computer based on the Intel 570J P4 Processor and it runs very very hot and when it gets hot it slows down my graphics. What can i do other than water cooling? OR is something wrong with my setup.
Video Nvida 6800 PCIE
Main Board Gigabyte GA-8I955X ROYAL
heat sink Thermal take 112 tower solid CU with 2x90mm fans
Corsair 2x1GB DDR2 533mhz
Antec P180 Case 2x160GB HD
Antec 500 PS
Help me please I do not want to use Liquid cooling if i can help it and I really don't want to spend any more Cash on useless solutions that do not work.

This is by far the best air-cooled heatsink currently available:

It has a thermal resistance of only 0.12 °C/W  ==> this means the temperature of the CPU will only increase by 0.12 °C  for every watt of power the CPU consumes.   For a 570J, with a thermal design power of 115w, that means the difference between the idle temp and max temp should only be 14 °C.
That should keep your system plenty cool.

... do measure carefully and be sure you have room for this -- but it fits fine on most motherboards.

Thank you I will look into this Heat sink as I was looking at those already but was not sure if it would help. But your explaination of how it works has really helped a lot.

I am thinking it should fit but will measure out to be sure as the 112 tower is huge I don't know if they get any bigger then the 112 tower.
i just mounted a couple of those last week, and want to add that you can have them run so quiet you cannot hear them, and even at full blast they are relatively quiet.
Sometimes if the heatsink isn't properly fitted the CPU won't cool properly. Make sure there is only a very small amount of thermal transfer paste between the CPU and heatsink, and make sure the heatsink is attached properly.
