Planning on upgrading to Intel's new i5 4670K. Going to be coupled with MSI Z87-G45, and I am unfortunately aware that the new Haswell chips are made of lava, so any recommendations for a CPU cooler less than £50-£60? My case is the Phantom 410, so I really don't want a huge air cooler like the NH-D14 as it would be the only thing visible through the window and I do want my PC to look good on the outside too. Thanks :)

As high as I can, ideally anywhere between 4.3 and 4.6

What's the biggest cooler that you can fit in there?

A Phanteks PH-TC12DX isn't as big, but it isn't small.

Just skimming through some reviews at present. Certainly looks the part. Gets temps similar to the H100 which seems pretty damn good! Thanks for advice :D
