Are you going to be overclocking? if so, would it be a high one (over 4.5ghz) or a lower one?

I will be overclocking. I do not know how high I'll go. I don't need something like the super expensive noctua or the COrsair air cooling h100. Just want something decent that will allow me to overclock a decent amount.

what type of budget do you have for a cpu cooler?
You can get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO for around $30. They are a good rated cooler for the price. If you want to spend more there is the Noctura and Prolimatech Armageddon (higher end coolers)

Yeah budget would help, and the Hyper 212 EVO is great for it's price.

If you can go a little higher check out the Xigmatek Aegir and Cooler Master V6 GT in the mid-40s.

If you are going into the upper price range for air coolers then why not just get a lower end Corsair H cooler? H50 or H80 would be fine for an overclock up to around 4.5.
