If you have an option, go with the Swiftech H220. (not available in US due to lawsuit)

According to Linus' testing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWQGmX994fU&t=5m49s

and Paul from Newegg's testing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhkWrSmvrZk&t=15m0s

If its not available, I would suggest going either with the Thermaltake Water 2.0, or the Coolermaster Eisberg 240L.

Plenty of choice.

- CM Hyper 212 Evo will get you standard to some OC
- Scythe's Mugen 3, preferably the Rev B PCGH edition, will get you some more for about the same price
- Noctua NH-D14 is the top, but also a lot more expensive
- Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 2 is as good (and expensive) as the noctua, but more silent.

Take your pick, get some Arctic Cooling MX4 paste and you're good to go.

EDIT: lot's of liquid recommendations here, also a good choice, but only worth their price if you really want the max OC

Would anyone recommend the cooler master v8 gts? It's new and uses vapor pipes

It's probably a good cooler with a bit of a hype, but I don't have any experience with it. Vapor pipes may help a bit, but they don't do wonders.
