Cooler for Phenom II x4 965 BE

So I need an aftermarket cooler for my processor and I'm at a crossroad at what to buy. I was planning on getting the Hyper 212 EVO but money is tight for me. I am planning on overclocking and was wondering if the evo would be the only choice for me, or would there bet a cheaper option that would allow me to get to the 4 GHz range? Like the 212 Plus.
