I'm building a gaming PC with an i5 4670k processor. I am not going to OC just yet, but I probably will in the future. I am looking to get a CPU cooler that is cheap/good/silent. I would prefer liquid since it normally is better and more silent, but if there are good options of air cooling I would consider them as well.
So if anyone can recommend me something compatible with the CPU that would be awesome! (So far havent seen a lot compatible with the 1150 socket, and by cheap I mean a $70 one, and not very large, just with a 120mm fan would be ok)
Also, if anyone can tell me how noisy is the stock fan of the i5 4670k I would appreciate it (This because if it is not noisy, I can probably buy the cooler later when I decide to OC)
As a general rule, air cooling is a quieter solution than water cooling.
If you are willing to go slightly over budget, you won't get too much better than the Noctua NH-D14 or the Phanteks PH-TC14PE. If you're set on the budget, you should be able to find a Noctua NH-U14S somewhere for $70, that's a good pick, as well as Zalman's CNPS11X Extreme.
