Another i5-2500k question, but all 4 slots of memory taken

Hey guys,

Im putting together the following build for gaming/overclocking. I plan on pushing the i5-2500k to 4.0 GHz and light video overclocking.

ASRock 768 EXTREME4 Gen3

Sapphire HD 6950 2GB

i5-2500k - got it from Microcenter, theyre having a sale $179.99 In Store Only

G.Skill Ripjaws X 16GB DDR3 1600

Cooler Master HAF 922 Case

I was set on the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ but Ive read that it blocks the first memory slot. Im filling all 4 slots for a 16GB setup so this would be no good.

Is there a HSF or LCS for the CPU I could use for under $50?

I was looking at the Antec Kuhler 620, but apparently its not better than most air systems.

Thanks for your help.
