One of the best for compatibility with case clearance is the "Skythe Big Shuriken 2" and it's not too expensive.
Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO is good value, but check that your case can fit a 159mm high CPU cooler.

You really can't beat the Hyper 212 for the price:

Also, it will fit quite nicely, as the case is 196mm wide, and the Hyper 212 is only 159mm tall.
