i7 4770k cpu cooler needed. need feedback

I want something that's going to more than cool the chip, that is quiet, and will fit inside a corsair 600t case. i searched newegg for the lga 1150 socket but it came back with 1 result which was basically a stock cooler. i am not interested in the corsair h100 series water coolers which have been suggested over and over again as they seem pretty loud and don't cool better than after market coolers from what i can tell. also, i won't be overclocking.

anyone got any suggestions?

    You are correct about the H series coolers.

    $125 - Coolermaster 240L prestige ..... "Real" water cooling solution, install as closed loop but can later "open" to connect more components....very good performance, very quiet compared to H series.

    $80 - Phanteks PH-TC14-PE .... best air cooling performance, best aesthetics, edges out Thermaltight Silver Arrow and Dh-14

    Cool and quiet, its regarded as one of the best air coolers on the market.

    If you're looking for more bang for your buck, should still be more than enough especially if you aren't overclocking.


    If you aren't going to be overclocking(and even if you are) these two coolers will more than suit your needs.

    This is a closed loop cooler and when connected to the CPU fan socket will be controlled by the bios. Since you won't be overclocking then the fan should not be speeding up and will remain at low rpms and not create any excessive noise.

    If you would prefer an air heat sink then this one will fit the 1150 and with a high of 19 db rating would be very quiet even at full speed and a low 13db rating makes it very , very quiet.
