Air cooler for LGA 1155

Hi, I'm looking for an air cooler at give or take $50. The air cooler has to be for LGA 1155, and overclocking is not important to me (ironic it's under the category Overclocking). The only reason it needs to be around $50 is because I want it under the H100, since if it is $80, I might as well jump for the H100 (That means the popular Noctua NH-D14 is out.) I have read a lot about the CM Hyper 212+, but I haven't read good reviews for it on Newegg. Any other suggestions? I am using a HAF 922 case.

    If you are not overclocking why do you want an aftermarket cooler? The included Intel heatsink is sufficent for any stock CPU.

    If you want something for ~$50 that is better than a Hyper 212 take a look at the Scythe Mugen 3. Scythe coolers are known for their low noise as well. My Mugen 2 is nearly silent.
