The NH-D14 is generally considered their best. I have one for my 4670k and it's great.

The C14 has the benefit of providing more airflow for the motherboard VRMs. But for pure CPU cooling, the D14 is better.

NH-D14 is the better cooler, and very quiet.

Another good option is Phanteks TC14PE. It's slightly cooler than the NH-D14 but also a little bit louder. Comes in less ugly colors and is a little less expensive if you shop around. Caveat: Intel mounting hardware is good, but there's a manufacturing glitch with the AMD mounting hardware and you *MAY* need to contact them for replacement parts.
