Hello i have recently built my gaming rig and my cpu is the i5-3570k. I am wondering what coolers are really good on the market right now (in the U.S.) for about 80$.

Also my case is a rosewill blackhawk mid tower

a really good air cooler for cheap is the cooler master hyper 212 EVO...it performs amazingly for the price only a few degrees C warmer than the best of the best and a third of the cost....unless you are going for the absolute max OC out of your chip then you will not notice the difference in performance...but you will notice the difference in the cost and size (not saying the evo is small by any means)

I call BS on those ratings. The H80 isn't near as good as some of the best air coolers and NH-C14 above the Phanteks and NH-D14. Where the Phanteks is commonly considered second best air cooler.

yea I actually read a review about it and it performs ok but for the cost its really not that good....it actually performed worse than the hyper 212 evo and it was much more expensive due to its vertical vapor chamber crap.....the best cooler master cooler is the hyper 612 followed by the hyper 212 evo
