A-M Cooler Advice for 955 OCing

Hi,
What would be a good but cheap AM cooler to get my 955 to 4 GHz. With the stock cooler I can get to a stable 3.8 GHz (19x 200 1.5V) with 59.5-60 max C on a stress test. Idle is in the mid forties, but it goes down because of Cool & Quiet.

I'm anxious to reach the 4.0 GHz threshold, but 60C is too close for comfort.

Thanks
