I recommend the Zalman CNPS9500:
Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan with Heatsink - Retail

or the 9700, if your case has the space...it's a bit bigger:
Newegg.com - ZALMAN 9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail

Are you planning on overclocking? Or just looking for something a bit quieter? If your answer is no to either, then spend your money on something else The stock heatsink and fan is usually fine for most people's needs.

The Zalman is a very good cooler but expensive as well. Unless you are going to do some high overclocking then get another Cooler or keep stock as they are just fine on average.

The thermalright XP-90 is good choice. Its only $22 US and you can pick any fan you want to cool it.
