Happy New Year, all!

Looking for an aftermarket CPU cooler for AM3+ socket CPU. Any suggestions? It's a bit overwhelming and I have no idea what to look for!

Thanks

I will nominate first: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065

$20 after rebate, and just works great. Make sure you have a big enough case, and enough room for a tower cooler. I have yet to find a setup it won't work on with a standard ATX case.

I have an FX-8150 and use the XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm. Actually, I use a slightly different non-Gaia version of that from Xigmatek.

Great cooler as well. Have an original SD 1283 on my Socket775 HTPC.

Do you have a budget, what CPU are you using and do you plan to overclock?
