The Peerless Assassin SE 120 or Phantom spirit 120SE will do the job for a resonable price.

If you want a bit nicer cooler in terms of aestethics the Deepcool AK620 ZERO DARK is great at 60 dollars.

Doesn't need an AIO. Anything that can handle 150W TDP. So some 4x6mm heat pipe coolers would do. But 6x6mm models would be better.

 

Modern CPU manage temps and will throttle when necessary to stay within spec. In other words, don't worry too much about CPU temps as long as you have good cooling.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
