Default phenom ii x3 720 unlocking

Ok so I have the processor in the title, it is a black edition. I want to unlock the 4th core but do not want to do this with stock cooling. I am looking for a heatsink for the processor to keep it cool at a low overclock and with all 4 cores enabled. I know nothing about this subject area however and would like some tips and recommendations on which one I should buy. My budget is < 45$ preferably. Thanks.
