Default Which CPU cooler should i go for?

Well i need a new CPU cooler and i was just wondering which one i should get ATM i have some shitty Thermaltake cooler (TR2-R1)
at first i wanted to go Freezer 64 pro from Arctic cooling or Thermalright True black-120
Im going to get the NZXT lexa case and i could use some recommendations on a good CPU fan because the one i have now is pure shit.

BTW im not planning on OC and i have an AM2 socket

I finally settles on the Noctua NH-U12P with push/pull. Seemed like the best overall for what I wanted. Ordered it yesterday.

the best cooler for AM2 is Mugen 2, it could mount sideways unlike the TRUE and 1283, it use screws instead of a clip and cost half of the price of the TRUE.

NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Mugen 2 Heatpipe CPU Heatsink LGA1366 LGA775 Socket AM2 120MM - SCMG-2000 In Canada.
