Phenom II 940 cooler & heatsink - any suggestions?

I'm looking into a 3rd party cooler/heatsink for a Phenom II 940 and I have two questions:

1) I'm a little nervous about using a 3rd party cooler since AMD's warranty is voided if I do so. Anyones have any thoughts about this? Any opinions about the stock cooler that comes with the 940?

2) If I do go for a 3rd party cooler, I'd prefer something not too huge. Any recommendations? I will be using an Antec 300 case (roomy, but not huge) and I will have a video card (single slot HD 4670).

thanks for the help!

If you are not overclocking, maybe just keep the stock cooler. My heatsink is much colder than my motherboard chipset heatsink.
