The nh-d14 would be my choice. Run it in a push-pull configuration!

Keep the fans that come with it. They are some of the most highly regarded fans as far as airflow is concerned. Use arctic silver5 thermal paste. How is the airflow in your case? What kind of case do you have and what kind of fans?

I think good CPU cooling has more to do with the passive part of the cooler (the heatsink basically) than rpm. I use a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and it maintains my Phenom II X4 965 BE under 37C @ idle and under 45C @ load (ambiant temperature is 30C).
Note: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus dose not cost more than 38 $.

i would also consider water cooling with a 280mm rad top case mounted.

280mm radiator water cooling would also be another option for me.
140mm fan x4!
