Cooling an AMD Phenom II X4 965

I'll need to cool a slightly overclocked AMD Phenom II X4 965 on an ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. What CPU heatsink do you recommend to me?

I've read that it's worth upgrading the cooler that comes boxed with the CPU but I don't have any idea about them. I'd like to find one that has a balance between cooling capacities and sound for less than 35€.

I really don't know if I'm asking something impossible so feel free to give your opinion.

Thank you very much,

  1. The AMD stock CPU cooler is actually pretty good.
    What 35€ CPU coolers do you have available in your area?
  2. Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.
    Available in U.S. for less than $30.
  3. Hi. I've just found a different post http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/278623-10-phenom-stock-overclock that recommends the Hyper 212 Plus.

    Here in Spain it would cost me 26€; I think I'll go for it, thanks.

    Edit: In the webstore where I usually buy the Hyper 212 isn't available. Would you recommend anything else? Thanks again.
