Hey, what's a good CPU cooler for AM3+ That isn't to hard to install, is quiet, cools really well, and is under 40 bucks?
(I already know about the Hyper EVO, anything else?)
I was looking at this, what do you guys think?

If you have any other recommendations, I would really prefer newegg

Thanks!
(Oh, and doesn't use to many watts, my system is running out of watts)

I'd stick with the EVO... It's made its point as a reliable and efficient cooler for that price point more than any other imho.

^^^
what he said, hyper 212 evo is about the best performance/$ you can get. It is super easy to install (well, as easy as installing a cpu cooler can be)

I can't but agree with the above posters - go with the hyper 212 evo.

Which one would be better?

I have a feeling about the first one, it's push and pull so it would be good for my setup. I have two cooling fans at the top of my case, and those pull air out towards the ceiling. I always point my fans to shoot the air upwards, so the fans vent it out. I think push and pull would be good for this. What do you think?

hmm, i have never seen the hyper N, so i dont know, but I do know the 212 evo comes with a 2nd mounting bracket, so if you have another fan.
It would appear the hyper N has a larger fin area, but if you look in the details those are 92mm fans, not 120mm, meaning they it is either equal, or smaller in area.
also the 212 evo has direct contact heat pipes.

I would recommend you pick the 212 evo, and if you decide you need more airflow, add another fan.
I currently have 3 computers running with 212evos in them, and they work quite well
