Which one of these would be the best to achieve high overcloking ? I consider going up to 5GHz on a 3770k so i want something that will cool it under 80' while running Prime95 ....

I know, 5GHz is a little ambitious for a Ivy Bridge but i love OC'ing and i would be so proud to be able to put a Ivy bridge to 5GHz :D 

If you have other coolers that will do a btter job for <70$ then go ahead

Don't care about noise as long as it do it's job

NH-D14, but you won't reach 5GHz on Ivy with a sub 70$ cooler, much less the I7...

so what you think will be the max stable under 80 ?

4.6GHz maybe, depending on how lucky you are with your chip.

4.4GHz at most I should say.

But unlikely, more like 4.2GHz.

alright thanks for the information :) 

what about the h100 with delta fans in push-pull on the radiator ?

(in case you don't know what delta fans are, they are fans that run at 4000-6000rpm)

Spend like 85$ for a Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E extreme and you can reach 4.8GHz possibly.

I do know what they are, and you would need Delta fans with very high static pressure, then you COULD reach 5GHz, MAYBE. Doubt it would be stable though. Ivy is IHS isn't soldered on like Sandy.
