medium-high cpu overclock, need cooler for matx case

i'm thinking of getting a cooler (preferably air cooled) for a i7-4770k (to a minimum of 4.4ghz) in a NZXT Vulcan case (matx). I need suggestion on what cooler that can offer enough cooling (to keep temp under 55*c) and can fit in this matx case. thx :D

    any chance of telling me your cpu, it's clock speed, the temp at stress and your case please. just for reference ;D?
  4. perform the same, with barely any difference, get whichever is cheaper, it won't disappoint.
  5. I have an intel i7 4930k @ 4.9Ghz stable

    Temps never above 60 degrees, under a good load
