    A lot of folks are still fond of the Thermaltake Volcano 7+ but there are a huge number of good choices. To say which one is "best" can be a daunting task. Thermalright makes some very good coolers but their price tag is a bit higher than others. You'll also have to consider your motherboard as sometimes a larger heatsink will interfere with capacitors in close proximity to the socket.

    I use the thermaltake venus 12 and it does wonders for my 754 pin. The cpu runs currently around 40-42 c which is a good temp for 754, i wish i would have gotten a 939 or 940 pin, since i would have been running around 35-38 with this cooler then.. The venus 12 is completely controllable, with settings from 5200 - 7500 Rpm fan speed, making it quiet - insanely loud, but keeps that cpu smooth!

    I noted the venus 12, in which i realize they dont have one for a socket, but its pretty much identical to http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16835106035the volcano 12 as he stated, looks to be the best for your socket at the most comparable price without WC..

    Volcano 12. It's just about the best, though it's loud as hell (note the name).
