im looking into doing a lot of overclocking with this Pc i just built, one of my friends who got the same exact part, except the case bought a OCZ vendetta 92mm, hes got it overclocked to 3.5 stable and his temps are 40C max, 24C idle. i plan to do about that much overclocking.

My system: Cooler Master Storm Scout, Corsair 650Tx Psu, 500gb Seagate, Asus M4a79xtd Evo Am3, AMD 720 BE, 4gb G.skill ddr3 12800, and a ATI 5770 card.

Im open to any suggestions on heatsinks, i just wanted to know about some other cpu coolers that perform as good, or better than the OCZ vendetta would in my case. id like to keep the spending under 50 dollars.
price and performance do matter to me.
