Which CPU cooler?

im building an i5 3570k rig and i still have to order a cpu cooler.
but there are lots of options and i feel a little lost.
my budget would be about £25 and i wont be doing any overclocking right now, however later down the line i most probably will overclock it to 4ghz so please keep that in mind.
i live in the uk so please no newegg links
amazon.co.uk should do the job.

thank you!

  1. At your price point, there really isn't anything better than this:

    Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (120mm) - £24.99

    Excellent cooling performance for the price that you get. It will be more than adequate for a 4 GHz overclock on your CPU. It can even handle more quite effectively.

    I think it will give better performance - I vaguely recall seeing a review with that cooler compared. It isn't typically recommended though.

    The CM is a very reputable cooler for its price - I'd give it my recommendation at this price point.
