here are 5 suggestions on air coolers.
For a cheap good air cooler i will suggest a Cooler MasterHyper 212 Evo. it's 40
For a high performance air cooler something like a CoolerMaster V8 or V6gt would be great. 65 (the V6gt should be a little better but also a little more noisy)
then off cause we have the Noctua NH-D14, it's one of the best air coolers on the market shown by benchmarks. 75
For a low noise, low profile small cooler that does not take too much space in your case, a Scythe Kozuti might be a good choice. 35
but if i know you right you are gonna be doing some overclocking right? in that case i don't think it will do you any good.

No problems.
again, these suggestions are only air coolers. i am getting myself a Corsair Hydro H80 for my next build. 80
a H60 is also good. it's a little more noisy and has a little less cooling performance then the H80, but it's cheaper. 65.

Be careful there kitty. One leak and it's all over with.
If you go air cooling make sure the bloody thing fits inside the case. I forgot one time that the cpu sits on a raised platform and that difference didn't allow my fancy tower cooler to fit. WAH!!!!!

As tempting as it is to give you a snappy unrelated come back, I'll be a gentleman today and let some one else put their foot in their mouth.
