Want a new program not using 3x5 or 5x5

In looking for a new program, been doing fierce 5 almost a year now. I'm not really into lifting heavy 3x5 anymore. I'd like to go lighter and utilize 3-4 sets of 8-12 rep ranges. Any good programs out there? I'd like to be able to focus more on hypertrophy than strength. Thanks.
