On a budget is cooler master hyper 212+, or the newer hyper 212 evo.

The 212+ is such a great cooler, you won't be disappointed.

Get the 212 EVO , the 212+ is a little bit harder to paste.

I don't know what you mean by affordable,but the coolermaster hyper 612pwm is much better than the 212 and it's only 40$,or a bit cheaper the 412PWM.

Affordable, to me means $50 or under. Im not a cheapskate when it comes to cooling and am just wondering what options are out ther other than the 212.

@bliz - I'll take those into consideration.

You can pretty much just pick any random cooler around $20 for an Ivy running 4.0-4.2ghz. Pfft Even stock cooling is good enough for 4.0 ghz.
