Best CPU cooler for i5 3570k that I will overclock?

I need a good CPU cooler that will fit with these specs:

- i5 3570k overclocked

- Thermaltake V3 Black AMD edition (I am too lazy to buy a new case to fit with my I5 processor) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?gclid=CIb16IvasLwCFWIV7AodggwA5Q&Item=N82E16811133200&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-Computer+Cases-_-N82E16811133200&ef_id=UuGDngAAAZ4czI5Y:20140203193549:s

- ASUS P8Z77-V LK - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837

Note that I already have one 120mm fan on the top of the case.

  1. Measure the room in your case for a tower type cooler.
    They are more efficient.
    The best ones will be about 160mm tall.
    They will use 120 or 140mm fans.
    The cm hyper212 is about $30.
    It will do the job for a conservative OC.

    The very best would be Noctua nh-d14 or phanteks at $75 or so.

    Dimensions: 18.60" x 7.50" x 16.90"

    The CPU and MB have not arrived in the mail yet, so I just want to be prepared to get the aftermarket cooler.
  3. Noctua NH D14 is the very best air cooler that money can buy. Highly recommended!
