AM3+ mounted cooler

I've just built my first computer with a m5a99x evo motherboard and amdfx 6core am3+ socket. :bounce: I'd like to be able to overclock for photo editing, not long sessions, and will feel much better with a good cooler on the cpu. I would like to do some overclocking to make editing faster, kind of like putting a turbo on my MG Midget.
I'm looking for advice on a cooler that will mount to the existing board without taking the thing apart again for the back mounting.
Thanks for the assist!
