Cooling the i7 3770k

I have a i7 3770k running stock speeds and stock voltages on stock coolers. Want expert opinion from you to choose the best cooler for money (air/water cooler). Another ques, does the Noctua NH-D14 put so much pressure on the mobo that it would break? (sorry if I'm dumb)

My Specs--
Processor: Intel i7 3770k
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Fatal1ty professional ATX
PCI-Express: Sapphire HD7950 3GB DDR5
RAM: Kingston Hyper-X Genesis 1600mhz 16GB
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 750W
Housed in a Thermaltake Soprano v9 Midtower case

    Go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065 it's perfect cooling to price ratio. Runs darn near silent which is always pleasant, most of the after market coolers come with back plates that you need to install to support the extra weight so no your motherboard won't break. If you have a buddy to help it makes it easier to install the heat sink, look on youtube for instructions because the ones that come with it are pretty bad.
