This is your best bet, and its $30. Goes on sale for around $20 from time to time but its the best cooler for the money out there.
Buy COOLERMASTER [RR-212E-20PK-R2] Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink AM2 AM3 LGA1366/1155/1156/2011 120mm

It should probably have been posted under Overclocking or Air Cooling but either way the above is your best solution.

If your on a budget the hyper 212 evo is the way to go. If you want to spend more and are highly concerned about noise go for a noctua.

+1 on the 212, for better cooling consider a Corsair AIO.

Personally I wouldn't spend more than what is required for a hyper 212 evo on an x4 965. As mentioned above, you could go to a liquid system if you wanted a bit more performance. The price goes up substantially for that extra little bit though.

So your saying the point spread between coolmaster and is water negligible ?I'm guessing the 965 won't clock much past 4.0.I'd be happy if I could reach that level with temp control.
