If your a 939 or 478, then get a Vantec Tornado. Its a 80mm-92mm fan at over 80CFM. Very few CPU fans can compare.

I would get a Thermalright SLK-948U and then get a 92mm fan with some decent cfm's,The Thermalright is not big and bulky like some of the newer stuff but it will do what you need no problem.
