Need help choosing a cooler

Hello, this is my first time on these forums. I was hoping for a water cooler but theyre either not in my budget or not compatible with my rig.

Here are the specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 processor
8gb ddr3 1600 ram
M4A87TD EVO motherboard
650W Corsair power supply
500gb hdd
Cooler Master HAF 922 mid tower case

Ive been looking at a few fans if you could just take a look and recommend which one would fit best.

Or if none of these happen to be good, a recommendation to a better one would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

    The EVO would be the Best Value from the list you provided.
    Buy an extra fan to run push pull setup on it.

  2. Between those the Enermax and Hyper 212 Evo are the best value and since there the same price you really can't go wrong with either one.

    can you tell me or link me to how i would set up a push pull? ive never done it before, or even heard of it til right now
  4. You attach both fans to the evo....one farthest from the rear of the case pushes the air, second fan pulls the air out towards your rear fan which should be exhaust

    so between the EVO and the extra fan, which would be the furthest from the rear?

    You put one fan on each side of the cooler and face them so they both blow air towards your exhaust, aka the back of the case. ;)
