What CPU Cooler Should I Get?

I want to find a quiet, yet good looking cpu cooler. It will go into a Corsair 350D with the windowed side panel. Motherboard is MSI z87m gaming and i5 4670K if that matters. I have around $60 to spend. I like how the noctua heat sinks are quiet but I hate how they look so, no noctua's please.

  1. For slightly better performance than the Noctua, but great aesthetics, the cooler that stands out is the Phanteks PH-TC14-PE

    If ya havent bought the case yet, Id suggest a significant upgrade that will save ya $20..... the Corsair 500R is cupla notches up in quality and room, and only $80 on newegg at the moment, after $20 MIR and $20 coupon code

    $20.00 rebate card
    $20 off w/ promo code EMCWVTJ45, ends 1/8

    Put that $20 towards ya cooler as the Phanteks it's $15 above ya budget at $75 (The Noc is $82)

    The phanteks are equally as good as noctua. They come in different colors.

    You would pay about $75 for the 140mm fan versions.

    Or, look an Xigmatek.

    I saw Tek Syndicate's review on the dark knight and it did as good as a h100! I'll get the xigmatek. It's also smaller than the Phanteks.
  4. The Phanteks tops the H100 in teh Vortez review when both used the same TIM....and at same fan speeds / noise it crushes it.

    The Phanteks is huge and would cover the whole motherboard. What do you guys think about the corsair h60? I'm not going to overclock by the way.
