Depends on how far you want to overclock. Usually the most economical option is the CoolerMaster Hyper 212. This is only a $30 cooler and does great;

sure it will. as pparks1 said, cm hyper 212 is one of some with best price performance aftermarket hsf cooler. But if you'd like to spend a bit more then you can buy Corsair H60 which has a universal retention kits. My Chasis is CM Scout too, and by having Hydro Cooler, our hardware setup will look cleaner with well-managed cable management. I still am modding some more and planning to cover my 24 pin cable power with spiral hoses. ( I'll update my pics soon ).

The Freezer 7 has a pretty good reputation also. It is often used as a replacement for the stock cooler, but is quieter and OK for modest overclocks. The Hyper 212 is probably a better choice for overclockers.

I would only look to the water cooling and these sealed systems are proven safe coolers. I've run two for years with flawless results.

^ And I never look to liquid cooling as I never push my overclocks all that hard and simply don't need the extra performance provided by the sealed liquid cooling systems. Heck, my current overclock of my Q9550 from 2.83Ghz to 3.40Ghz is running on the stock Intel Cooler and has given me no troubles now for 2.5 years.

If you do go for it here is how to mount it on an AMD motherboard so it can be in a up/down or front/back configuration,
