Question CPU HSF suggestions?

My specs are in my sig. I am currently using an Arctic Freezer 7 pro and am not satisfied (have had it for a year) Now, with the E8400 idk what temperature is right, so I look at the prograpm giving me the highest temps. So im idling around 42c stock speeds. Ill spend about $60 on a new HSF. So, what are your recomendations? thanks TF

that slightly better comes from close to .3C i believe. In my opinion, it isn't worth the extra money.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I plan on just buying one from the tigerdirect store by me. I always see this 1 there. Is it any good?
