i would suggest getting a new psu.
zalman is not the even near the best psu maker.
for cooler,depends on your budget,hyper 212 EVO is a good bang for buck.
what's your max budget?

As said - get a better quality PSU. Decent ones come from Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Enermex, and a few select units from other companies but the aforementioned are usually the ones where most if not all their units are solid.

A Hyper 212+ or an Evo would be an excellent cooler (whichever is cheaper).
