Thermalright SI-120. It uses the stock backplate on the motherboard, but it has a different bracket on the front. All you have to do is remove 2 screws, take off the old front bracket, put the new one in and replace the screws, you don't have to take the motherboard out of the case to fiddle with the back plate at all. It is only a heatsink, it does not come with a fan so you have to buy one seperatly and clip it on with the clips supplied with the SI-120.

I would recommend the Zalman 9500, I've got this setup w/ the 3700+, and it idles @ 30, and 39 for load. However, it's more than what you want to spend. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118223

I hear this one is pretty good, but have no personal experience. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118115

I think he was asking about one that does not need a new bracet.

I have a Asus X-Mars that seems to work well. My idle temps are 34C, Load temps are 43C. This cooler clips right on to the stock clips. took all of five minutes to install including the artic silver 5. This cooler was designed for x2's and only weighs about 400 grams.
