I'm looking for a great heatsink and fan like the NH-D14 but the main issues I have with it are its color. I just hate the beigeish red color scheme. Are there any heatsinks that perform similarly to the NH-D14? So far it is the best one I have seen. A lesser price point would be nice too but I'm okay with the 90$ price tag if need be.

Hyper212 is cheap, can have almost any 120mm fans bolted to it, and perform quite well. I think price/performance it's the best out there. There are many others out there though. Just google up best 1155 air cooling and see what you find.

I found this and fell in love with the coloring and apparently it is just as good if not better than the noctua. Would it fit in a haf x case with g skill ripjaws x series ram though?

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE it's available in several colors, the performance is on par if not better than the NH-D14 from what I was able to gather from reviews with the Phanteks being quieter at the same cooling performance.

Edit: The Hyper 212 is a good budget cooler is no were near the performance of the NH-D14 or the Phanteks.

I just stumbled upon those too and they look and I'd love to buy them. Would they fit in a Haf x case with g skill ripjaws x series ram though? All the reviews I see say they are monstrous even for larger cases.

They will fit, you're worrying too much about your memory. Just install memory first, then install your cooler.

If you're willing to shell out for a D14, you might as well consider the Phanteks mentioned earlier, or Thermalright's Silver Arrow(or Extreme).

They are the best air coolers out there IIRC.
