AMD isn't my expertise but any of the following are good picks depending on limitations/style/budget/space/anything.

TRUE, Tuniq Tower, Zalman 9500 and 9700, AC7, OCZ Vendetta 2

Check the zalman guy in the link in my sig. He has cheap zalmans, the 9500 might do it but I would go for the 9700 and you should have room to spare.
