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

The stock cooler that comes with the 955 is actually a very good one that is why you were able to hit 3.8GHz stable...
But if you want to higher, then for about $28, this would be my pick...
Sunbeam 92mm Core Contact Freezer CPU Cooler CR-CCTF92

Or this one...
