Hi, I currently have AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition with stock cooler and since I want to overclock I need a new one. Currently it's the noisiest part in my PC.
But I also plan on buying Ivy's bridge i5-3570K OEM (LGA 1155) when it comes out and I would like to take this new cooler with me and sell AMD PC with stock one.

I require a quality cooler that is super quite (since I deal with sound recording on my PC) and will last for some time. But I'm trying to save money and want to spend $50-$55 max.
Since my case is unusual I came here for an advice.

So far I'm thinking Zalman or Scythe.

P.S. I currently ave this mobo and plan to buy med.-prices intel one for 1155 when it comes out (no SLI support really needed)

Hyper 212 Plus is a very cheap, quiet, but efficient cooler.

The coolermaster hyper n520 is also excellent for cooling. It uses the push pull method my i5 2500k never gets over 30c on my wifes rig.
