either an h70 or liquid cooling to get those temps down.

I would get some water on that thing. looks like a possible golden chip.

You could give the hyper 212 a try if you are willing to.

Whats your budget? before recommendations can be made for a mid or high end cooler knowing your budget helps.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16835608018 - high end
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...&Tpk=megahalem -epic cooler

Any of these with the fans of your choice would be good

with the mega, you have to buy the mounting hardware to make it work with amd which is about 15 dollars from Frozencpu i believe.

Water, water and more water that is one hot chip.

Or a cooling system from a nuclear power plant.

NH-D14 is a clear winner

(At least don't go for the v8, the noise is unbearable)

OK i am most probally going with this cooler

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=15095

Scythe Ninja 3 CPU Cooler

From the review on Guru3d, it is only 1 Deg hot then the NH-D14

It is a good chuck cheaper, it is physically not a high (which is good because i can leave my 140mm side panel fan in) and is actually quieter...
