Hyper 212 is $30ish ....
Hyper 612 PWM or Scythe Mugen 3 is $50ish .... 5-7C better than 212
Thermalright Silver Arrow is $80ish .... 7-10C better than 212

the better the cooler the better your overclock so dont complain you cant get 4.0 when you buy a 30 dollar cooler

How much are you looking to spend?

Here are 3 air coolers that range from $30 - $80. They are all popular and do a great job.
