NZXT Respire T40
I would recommend the Noctua NH-D14 but it is quite huge and may not fit some cases but its cooling abilities are very good.
Now another option is an All-In-One Water cooler such as
Thermaltake Water2.0 series
Corsair Hxx series
NZXT Kraken series
Coolermaster Seidon Series
Zalman LQ series
+1 on the Xig DK Night Hawk cooler (I run 3 of them). Very good performance, solid mounting system, and looks great. The only downside is that it is a little expensive ($40-50) and mounting fans on it is a bit of a pain....
