Default New, good air cooling solutions?

What's up techies?! Long, long time! I haven't been on these forums for ages, but am looking to upgrade my PC in the next while. I'm pretty up on the newest tech except for air cooling. I still have my old trusty TRUE 120, but am looking for something that does a bit better at cooling under load. What is the best heatsink and quiet fan solution out there now days?

Honestly, AIO solutions are so much better than tower coolers these days. You pretty much have to buy heatsinks the size of your case (Noctua DH14/15) to get similar performance.

If you don't know what I mean, I'm talking H80i, H100i, H110, ect.
