Here's what I have, a great value:

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-G1 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler

Keeps my i5 at just under 30c at idle, and 47c max through 6 hours of Prime 95

Here are some good articles for you:

Good luck, i5 is a great overclocker, but a simple baseclock change to 160 with turbo will give great overclock with the advantage of good power consumption. A Guy

P.S. Make sure your case is wide enough for this. 8" should do it, unless you have a side fan. What case are you using?
