What's your budget?

I use a Noctua NH-U12P SE1366, the TRUE heatsinks are also great.

For a budget cooler go with the Sunbeam Core Contact

Get a better one. This is the best low-cost heatsink available.

Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
you'll also need the LGA1366 retention bracket
