Buying new CPU cooler for i7-2600k

Good morning TH's people!

I need a new CPU cooler for my i7-2600k.
Right now I have a CM 690 II Advanced case with a P8Z68 Deluxe motherboard

I'm using a full set of memory without heat spread

I'm considering these options:

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-GP
Cooler Master Vortex Plus
Cooler Master Hyper TX3
Cooler Master Gemin 2S - RR-CCH-PBU1-GP
Corsair Air Series A70 - Dual Fan - CAFA70

My objetive is to get lower temperature and lowering the noise (comparing to the stock one), maybe I would try some OC, but just for fun.
Pricewise the listed coolers are all affordable, I just need to know which one would better fit my necessity.

If you have any more options this is the website I would use to buy the coolers:
Store - Coolers List 1
Store - Coolers List 2

Just for reference, right now R$ 1,75 = USD 1,00


EDIT: Just to state that if worth I could grab a CM Hyper 612 or CM N620. A bit more expensive than I would like, but no problem if worth it.

    A link to a website if you want to compare the coolers with noise and heat dissipation.

    I do know this website, I was surfing through it right now, but sadly this Top Charts doesn't direct include any of these CPU coolers I listed.
  3. id say go with a 212 + push pull config havnt heard one bad thing about them even with people overclocking, other than some people dont check to be sure that there case is large enough.
  4. Cooler Corsair Air Series A70
    Cooler CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus
    These two coolers are very good and better then the others in your list.
    I've used both of them to cool my i5 760 in a CM 690 II = both fit fine.
    The A70 was bought to replace the 212+(found the fan was louder then i prefer)
    The A70 was the same price and sports push/pull = quiet with inline fan resistors.
    The A70 is a really good value since it includes two fans.
    Slightly better temps then the 212+.(nothing to brag about though)
    Either one will suit you fine.
