Well, I need some details.

I personally use a Samurai Z cooler (Scythe), because it is low profile and very quiet, but I plan to upgrade to a Scythe Ninja, because I can get more airflow, for higher overclocks, and it is practically just as quiet.

Yeah, as far as price/ performance ratio goes, Scythe Ninjas are the best.

A little out of your price range, but trust me, it's a kick-*** buy.

bad idea with a DFI board, the way the mount is postioned you can get the HSF to blow air towards the back fan

Yeah, it was a shame when I figured that out with my board.. but honestly it doesn't make that big of a difference for me. My 3700+ idles at 37 celcius @ 2.95.. load never more than 45ish.
