As the title says, I'm looking for a new CPU cooler. Both air cooler or water cooler will do. If you guys could write a suggestion for each type then that would be nice.
Also here's my build in case it helps:

Intel BX80637I73770K i7-3770K 3.5/3.9GHz LGA1155 IVY Bridge Boxed CPU Cores 4/8MB
ASUS P8Z77-V-DELUXE ATX Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 16GB Kit(8GBx2) DDR3-1600 CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9
ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 2GB GTX670 PCI-E VGA Card
Antec HCG-750 Hight Current Gamer Gaming PSU

My case is the Thermaltake Armor Revo Full Tower Case.

Thanks in advance

Also around a $50 - 80 budget would do.

I say the cooler master Evo is a good bang for the buck. only $30 to $40 too.

A xigmatek dark knight II in push pull apparently cools similar or slightly better than a h100. Its basically the same design as the hyper 212 evo, but with a ceramic coating on the heatsink, teksyndicate did a review on it seemed pretty convincing to beat the h100 for its cost around $50, my zalman cnps 9900 max cools for oc'd x6 like a champ, and isnt to large to block ram. Phanteks and noctua nh d14 have some of the best air coolers. But yes the 212 evo has the best bang for the buck, its like $30 and cools as well as coolers that cost more.

Edit: My brother in law uses the zalman cnps 9900 NT with his 2600k idle stock clock stays near mid to low 20c, and load like bf3 maybe mid 40c if i remember right

The thermaltake armor revo is a full tower, it should be fine to fit a huge cooler like the phantek/noctua.

I'm considering getting the Noctua nh d14, but would it interfere with things such as ram and VGA since it's such a large cooler?
