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.

Cooler CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus http://www.kabum.com.br/cgi-local/kabum3/produtos/descr...
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.
