your selection is often different then ours and pricing is different (some products are better bang for buck here and some are the better there). What online store will you buy from?

The most common go to air cooler on a budget is the cooler master hyper 212+ or 212 EVO in Canada IMO.

Not V6 the Hyper are just far better coolers, there is also Coolermaster X6 ELITE which is one hell of a cooler, very nice reviews on it and one of the easiest coolers to put together, also because of its height it VERY unlikely to get in the way of ram or have spacing issues, its is a very fair sized, decently cost unit and its performance is just astounding.

Hyper 212+, Hyper 212 EVO, Hyper 612, X6 ELITE, or a Noctua Unit. There is also Corsair A70 or H50/60 with push/pull(all coolers should be push pull in my opinion)

From what I've seen, Coolermaster units are typically priced rather poorly in the UK. Last time I was in London, Scythe units were typically priced the most reasonably for performance/value units. I'd go for something like the Scythe Mugen if your case can fit one.

Personally, I would buy a Noctua cooler over a CoolerMaster one. In addition to other factors, Noctua's mounting system is a breeze, I cannot say the same about CM's mouting system.
