Unless that cpu/mobo combo is giving you a 4.5+ GHz oc i wouldn't concern myself too much with an expensive cooler.
A CM 212+/Evo would be fine.

The best price/performance coolers in CM's lineup are the 212+ and the V6GT.
The V8 is mediocre it's ok but not their best.
It's a rather old discussion,here on the OC thread.
The OP needs to be more forthcoming on his intentions/uses and what he currently has his cpu clocked at.
He has a sub $100 entry level mobo a H61.
I personally don't recommend coolers costing the same amount as the posters mobo.
Not that the V8 does but the most highly regarded air coolers certainly do.
