Get a TRUE 120, if price is an issue I would go with the Xigmatek 1283 which functions quite well for half the price.
Sorry for the mobo but the best coolers are:
Vendetta V2

There are more coolers that are in the same cooling efficiency but the NH-U12 is the best since it's a flat surface unlike the TRUE's surface that can vary from bad to really bad.
A lapped TRUE on the other hand is unbeatable.
OCZ Vendetta 2, $40 (before rebate), free shipping, $10 rebate:


Just got my second one. I'm hoping to hit 4.0ghz with a q9650 and this cooler. My personal experience has been very good - at the moment, I've got a Vendetta 2 on a [email protected], 1.475v; temps are in low/mid 30s C. Very well-reviewed, too. Against other cpu coolers (came out #1):


Against TRUE:


And it's $20 less.

Hope this helps.
