    The right cooler depends on your setup (how large of a cooler you can fit) and how you're using your computer (i.e. what your OC goals are). If you have a fair amount of room then consider the following coolers:

    Noctua d-14 (mentioned above)

    NZXT Havik 140 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005869XYK/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_g147_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0EMR2QM6T183D05BXVH2&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846

    Thermalright HR-02 - http://www.amazon.com/ThermalRight-HR-02-MACHO-Thermalright-Macho/dp/B005ERSN7G/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1337524597&sr=1-2

    If you have restrictions on size and what you can fit consider the following:

    Hyper 212 Evo - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005O65JXI/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_g147_i4?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0EMR2QM6T183D05BXVH2&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846

    NZXT Havik 120 - http://www.amazon.com/120mm-Cooler-havik-120-Silver/dp/B0076HMHHO/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1337525193&sr=1-2

    Noctua NH-U12P - http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NH-U12P-Heat-Sink-With/dp/B002N2JVEE/ref=sr_1_9?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1337524597&sr=1-9


    Each of those coolers are very competitive in their price points and ultimately you need to assess what can fit in your setup and how much cooling need you will have. Those 2 questions should also help you decide on a "push/pull" setup.

    IMO, go with the hyper 212 EVO if you aren't going to be doing a higher OC. It's a great price, isn't quite as large as other coolers, and does a good job of keeping that CPU cool.

    All the cooler you listed above are unavailable where i live (src: http://www.egprices.com/subcat.php?sub=133&sortby=price_desc&sortby=price_desc&pageNum_rsProd=0 ) except the NZXT havik and Hyper 212 Evo. I might go for overclocking after a while of research. I will be using the HAF X case so i think i will have lots of room
  6. And i also heard the intel i7 3770k tend to heat up a lot when overcloked
