I am getting a Phenom II 955 BE and I would like to overclock it as much as possible. What's the most effective CPU cooler for this purpose that's $30 or less? I've heard good things about the Coolermaster hyper 212 and the Xigmatek Gaia. Thanks!

The CM hyper 212+ seems to do the job just fine. Gets my vote.

The only way to do better than the 212+ is to spend about 1 1/2 times as much money assuming that it will fit inside your case and give you the required DIMM clearance.
