Hi, and welcome to Bleeping Computer! If you are looking for a cooler that is quiet and can easily cool the FX8350 without increasing the fan speed, then the Noctua NH-U14S would be a solid choice, although if you are on a budget then the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO is well regarded by the enthusiast community for it's excellent price to performance ratio.

I've never liked stock coolers, there are several aftermarket coolers you can choose from. Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, ARCTIC Freezer A30, or Enermax ETS-T40-TB. These are large 120mm coolers, so make sure you have plenty of room before buying. I use an aftermarket cooler with my FX processor mostly for noise reduction.
