Absolute best bang for the buck is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835233003 . I had it cooling a very overclocked i7 920 and it did a great job. Sometimes you can find it for $29.99 if you look around. Very quiet. I do not know about the AMD mount for this unit, as I have no experience with it on an AMD. You can't "clock" it (rotate it) like you can with an Intel mount, so it might cut down your install options.
I will caution you about installing little fan isolators on the heatsink fins. Trial and error, wrap bandaids around a couple fingertips to save blood.

The cooler master Hyper 212+ is one of the best you can get for the $$$
Maximum pc magazine gave it very high rating and I have on on my i7 920 pc (o/c'd to 3.6 on air), this is a multi-compatible cpu cooler so it will fit your AMD chip too
Edit: this is a good sized cooler so your case will need to be at least 7 1/2" deep at a mininum

Looks like it runs at about 50.1 dBA, at high fan speed, and 35.3 at low speed.
