Hi geeks,

Looking for a AIR CPU Cooler for my i5 4670k Haswel (max $75). Make sure it fits my setup :D 

Any suggestions?
I have been suggested the Noctua NH-D14 or Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Cooler Master Hyper Evo is the best bang for the buck, but if you're looking to get the best possible air cooler, get the Noctua NH-D14.

I was debating between the two myself for my 4670k, but ended up getting the Cooler Master since it was much cheaper and I was able to get 4.4GHz Stable on it.

Make sure your case is deep enough for those coolers. My Noctua cooler goes right up to the edge of my side panel window in my Antec 902 Case. You should list your Case and RAM also because these huge air coolers get in the way of everything =)

I think I'm going to buy the CM Hyper 212 Evo probably! Noctua is nice.. but kinda expensive. And I'm not going to overclock for right now anyway. 50% cpu load on BF4 :)
