So im getting the Ivy Bridge I5 3570k for a gaming system :D 
Im pretty sure i want to go for an aftermarket CPU cooler, due to loudness, and also temps.
Im not looking into overcloking at all. And im ready to drop about the 100 $

Modo: Z77 Asus Sabertooth

Case: Cooler Master HAF X

If you're not OC'ing, the stock cooler will be just fine, but if you really want to get an aftermarket cooler, just get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo for $34.99 @ Newegg.

No need to spend $100 if you're not OC'ing, and regardless, the 212 Evo is a GREAT cooler for the price.

So the 212 will be better due to cooling then the stock fan? Also, the noise 31 dB at max, dosent sound bad :)

Oh yeah, it'll absolutely be better than the stock cooler, and even let you OC some in the future, should you choose to. And yeah, it's pretty quiet. With mine, even at 100%, it's not the loudest fan in my case (GPU fans at 50% are louder, lol)
