Default Suggestions for Cpu cooler

I have this processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103751

Can anyone offer some advice on an aftermarket cooler?

I'd go with what Nukem said. Also if you want a little bit cheaper....check out the CNPS9500.

Here's another option

if your mobo and case can fit it:

that thing cools well, works a hair better than my Zalman CNPS9500

because the mounting bracket for am2 is all awkward.
you have to set on side in place, then push down, twist side to side (to remove air bubbles), then clamp second side.
which means you don't (at least i usually don't) get it the first try.
wipe with alcohol soaked coffee filter, repeat.

Do you cyphen the alcohol out afterwards and make alcoholic coffee? Or do you use lets say, Amstell Light?
