You may want to consider something beefier for an FX CPU. The AC Freezer 64 Pro would be good, as well as the Scythe Ninja for a bit more.

Either way, the Opty is dual core, so you might want a bit bigger cooler. For $30 I bet the Freezer 64 Pro is the best you can find new. Used you might be able to get a Big Typhoon or Zalman CNPS9500.
