I just got a new gaming rig and am looking to do some overclocking. I have a Core i7 2600k and am planning on overclocking to somewhere around 4.5ghz or so. So what Cooler is able to handle that at comfortable below ceiling level temperatures and is under $40?

You could try water cooling (a full-blown water cooling solution, rather than a pre-built loop) for the ultimate in cooling.

If you want air cooling, then I'd suggest Noctua D14 - it's a seriously powerful air cooler.

Both of these are $80 :/ . I think i might just go with this XIGMATEK LOKI SD963 92mm HYPRO Bearing CPU Cooler, cause its cheap and it seems like it works for what i need.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 series works great.

I have a i5 2500K @ 4.2 and 1.33V. Runs 3degrees C above ambient at idle. 20 deg. C rise at full load.
*EDIT*
I Lied , 1.29V. Runs 7 degrees C above ambient at idle. 34 deg. C rise at full load.
30 Deg C Idle, 57 Deg C Load.

sandy bridge doesnt give out much heat so noise should be your main concern in your new buy, the be quiet dark rock pro/advanced is cool and quiet plus i think its in your budget

Evo has more copper exposed that is touching the cpu, so better cooling.

The EVO has a direct contact base,improved fin design,and quieter fan. = an improved version of the excellent 212+.
Either unit can handle a 2600K @ 4.5GHz no problem.
