CM 212+ should work very nicely. Can't go wrong for the price anyhow.

thast the minimum you should look at, also thats the best cooling/dollar spent right now, given you buy it in canada. other countries are probably way more expensive.

check the review for the v6 gt that ak did a couple days ago. thats 60 bucks. beats the 212+ with a decent 10c in some cases.
