3570k cooler

What coolers should I be considering for my 3570k? People have been telling me to get the Corsair h80i, but I thought I would get some other opinions. I am looking to spend up to about $100 dollars, but noise is a slight concern. I know that people mostly suggest the 212 evo, but I want to know what else is out there.

My build if helpful:

  2. Are either of these coolers going to be an issue with my ram? I don't have low-profile ram, so I don't want to buy one just to have it not fit.

  4. Yeah then do not buy either of those sorry.
  5. Noctua NH-D14 or NHU12P se2 (i have the second on an i7 3770k @ 4.83ghz) temp max on mine are 80 Celsius with a GTX680 in a Antec P280

    The NHU12P se2 clear my ram 3 farther slots when on horizontal side so if using dual ram stick, it's ok... It can be installed on vertical and in pull only and clear all ram slots too (performance are still very good, was using like that with HyperX T1 on my old Q6600 SLACR (2.4ghz) @ 4.05ghz with 1.6V vcore just one pull fan was still ok to keep temps under 70 celsius on this chip...
