If you want to overclock and you are serious about it, go with liquid cooling. It costs no more than a normal air setup, and the performance is excellent. I was aggravated in my builds using AMD processors because I had a hard time keeping the lid on the temperatures. I switched to liq cooling and never looked back. Quiet and powerful. Here are two getting top reviews from Newegg.

Just an additional thought: however you set this up, do not block any airflow from the radiator fan. I added a dust filter to my unit, and the CPU temp went up 3°. Not a big deal because the unit already lowered my temps by 10-13°C but if you are a hard-core gamer it may make a difference. I don't game.

A CoolerMaster 212 Evo is good value and effective.  You have to spend quite a bit more (or go to liquid cooling) to significantly better it's performance, and it's less than $30.  It's not the only choice but a popular one.  It should fit in most mid-sized ATX cases (your manufacturer doesn't specify a max cooler height).  Noctua, Thermalright, Scythe, Zalman, Phanteks amongst others also make some nice coolers.  Most standard mid tower cases take up to about a 160mm (6") high cooler without it stopping you put the side panel back on..

I personally like the Noctua range of cpu fans.  They also have a low profile model available.
