And yes, upgrading to a 6300 (or even an 8300) would help prevent you from being CPU bound.
As far as CPU coolers go the usual price/performance champion is the CM Hyper 212 in basically any of its many variants. You can also spend around $80 for a high-end air cooler such as the NH-D14, Megahalems, Silver Arrow, Dark Rock Pro 2, etc, or finally, you can spend anywhere from $50-$120 on a "all in one" liquid cooler, such as the Corsair H-series, or the Antec Kuhler series. There's lots of debate about which one is the best, and there is a lot of buzz right now about the h80i and h100i, but again, they're all options for you to consider.
