Noctua NH-D14 or a Megahalems or one of those mega towers, I forget which manufacturer. Anyway, it's pretty easy to find top rated coolers. For example, frostytech.com

The D14 mentioned above is a beast of a cooler, both in size and performance.
The Megahalems is also a good choice, then there's the VenomousX as well.
Follow Wolframs advice and read some reviews at Frostytech to help you decide which would be best for you.

if you're planning on overclocking, i'd suggest the Promilatech Megahalems also
or watercooling, if you don't want alot of trouble just get a set from swiftech for $299
