Haven't used a heatsink/fan for a while but I suggest something like the Swiftech MCX462 (providing you have 4 mounting holes around CPU), Thermalright SLK-800, Volcano 9 or something in that class. Then get a fan around 3900-4500 RPM (I think all those heatsinks use an 80mm fan) and unless you're deaf stay away from the 7000 RPM highspeed fans because they are way too loud.

My suggestion is ...

Thermaltake Volcano 11 [good value]

GlobalWin CAK-488T [SuperSilent - I use this one - not cheap]

Both are copper coolers.
