I will buy an i5 3570K. I want to make about 4.5 to 4.6 GHz OC.

What do you think of this cpu cooler?

I want to spend no more than $ 50

that's a big cooler, I would need to know the rest of the system (case and motherboard) to judge that.
I'd stay safe and look for something not so big..

I'm afraid that heatsink is going to interfere with your RAM slots it's that big.
and looking at the specs, it's heavy too.
the motherboard might not be strong enough to support without proper handling.

I guess what I'm saying is that while it looks good and specs are decent, it's too big.

let's just hope that CPU heatsink/fan doesn't interfere with your RAM and it's heatsink or blocking a RAM slot..
that's all, and if it works, clears so you have space then congrats..
