Best cheaper cooler for an i5 2500k?

I am about to buy a Cooler Master Hyper 212+, but just wanted to make sure there wasn't a better one out there in the same price range. My processor is a socket 1155 i5 2500k but my motherboard (ASRock P67 Extreme4 B3) supports coolers for sockets 775, 1155, and 1156.

So, is there a better cooler than the 212+ for my processor that is under $40 or $50 dollars?

  1. That's the best cooler for the price that you can buy in that range.
  2. Best answer
    I agree with SAINT19 for ease of install and ram compatabilty the 212+ is excellent.
    Some might recommend the Scythe Mugen 2 which is slightly better but a PITA to install and is troublesome with tall ram kits.
  3. Agreed - Hyper 212 +
  4. honestly it is the best at it's price range but if your planning to change the fans then it's actually going to cost you more if not the same for a better heatsink.
