I have a AMD fx 8320 cpu and the stock cooler for it is just horrible. It sounds like a jet plane half the time.. So i'm going to upgrade it. However, I need some help finding out what coolers will fit on my motherboard, etc. And what are some good upgrade options.

My otherboard is GA-78LMT-USB3 gigabyte mobo.

There are millions of possibilities out there, to recommend a few:

For Air:
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

("Plus" edition is cheaper)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Noctura NH-D14 (Maybe ugly and a little pricey, but cools like a beast.)

Water:
Corsair H60

Corsair H100i (if you can fit it in your case)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thats just to name a few of what I have worked with in the past, they all cool well and allow you to OC to some extent. I personally have a Corsair H100 and have loved it from the moment I installed it. I hope this kind of puts things into perspective a little bit.

How many inches of depth does my case need to be? My case is almost 8 inches in width

you are good to go, 8 inches is enough, you only need 6.5 inches
