Default S775 cooler suggestions?

I want to upgrade my HS sometime in the near future, my case has nearly unbeatable air cooling so it wouldn't necessarily need a fan. Any suggestions? Right now I have a low-end Thermalright, which seems to do alright but I want to do better.

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone HTC One M8 - Sense 7 - 6.0

This is probably the best cooler out there:
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

And it comes with TX-2 thermal paste.

Edit: You're from the UK, so you'll have to use a different website.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
