Any AM3 socket heatsink. There are many many out there. I would recommend a Xigmatek or a Scythe. Yet others will say differently.

How much are you willing to spend? If you want a "Good" Heatsink I have a couple TRUE's for sale that have been lapped flat but you'll still need to buy a good 120mm fan.
