What do you mean by little? The stock intel cooler can easily handle clocks up to 4ghz!
I would purchase the cooler master hyper 212+ over the H60, it actually performs much better and is half the price!

Its important for us to know what PC case you will be using before we can recommend a cooler.

While i really do like the H series coolers from Corsair as they free up alot of room in your case and are pretty decent coolers aswell, i would say for price/performance you are much better off with a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo.

Buy the H60 but add a 2nd fan to it and use them in a push pull configuration.

another question:which fans should i get for the push/pull configutation? it should be with red led or no led.
