I'd recommend the Artic Freezer A30.
I've got it, and it keeps my overclocked Phenom II 965 (which has at least the same thermal output of your CPU) at a cool 50 degrees with no noise under full load.
It's got a giant fan (quieter), has 320Watts of cooling capacity, and I've never had it increase speed from it's lowest setting. It's also rather cheap. It is huge though, but it'll be the last AM3 cooler you'll ever need. Oh, and the heat pipes contact the CPU directly - no block.

$50 - although I managed to get it in the UK for £20 a month ago. I'd strongly recommend it.
