Best 120mm AIO for the price?

Hello all,
I am looking at purchasing a new AIO watercooler. I would like to limit the options to 120mm fans/radiators/Who's. I saw the Corsair h50 and h55 on sale (around $10 off.) Would these be good for my 6600k and a mild overclock, possibly?
I am looking to spend under $100. If you guys have any recommendations, please let me know!
Thanks!!!

  1. This is not what you want to hear:

    A simple $35 tower type cooler like the cryorig H7 will cool as well or better in your case
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4UF2DZ6565

    It will be cheaper, easier to install, quieter, and will not leak.
    When filtered, the front intakes will keep your case cleaner.

    Your i5-6600K overclock is limited by the quality of your chip, not your cooling.
    As of 12/04/2016
    What percent can get an overclock at a somewhat sane 1.40v Vcore.

    I5-6600K

    4.9 14%
    4.8 38%
    4.7 67%
    4.6 87%

    There is no "best AIO", because no AIO made can compete w/ an air cooler, At any price range, the air cooler will always outperform the AIO. CLC type AIOs should be avoided because of inadequate pump flow. the use of mixedmetals, inefficient aluminum rads, and high noise.

    Here we see the $60 Corsair being beat by the $25 Hyper 212



    With your budget, the best you can do is a Noctua NH-D15 however for a mild overclock, really no need to spend more than $25 for a Hyper 212 or a $35 for a Cryorig H7
