  1. Preferred budget?
  2. Coolermaster 212+ => Best bang of buck cooler
    Phanteks PH-TC14PE => Best Air cooler
    Corsair H110 => Best liquid cooler, well, it's better than two above..especially in overclocking condition..

    like mr calculatron said, depend on your budget..

    dont really have one, Ill spend whatever I can to reach an overclock of that range. I dont mind if its water or air cooler or how it looks.

    well, if you wanna reach only 4 ghz, even coolermaster 212+ will fit your needs..
    phantek will do better, 4.2 or more
    corsair h110 will be a good choice if you wanna max cooling in max daily overclock. for example 4.4 or more.

    Well, Im looking for a OC thats obviously worth doing. Is 4.2 a affective area? I just strictly game on the PC. Looking for an effective/safe 24/7 OC.

    that's depend on your needs..

    i5 3570k maximum daily overclock is around 5GHz..
    4.2-4.5 is the sweetest spot for overclocking..
