    Best air cooler for i7 4770k?

    What is the best Air cooler for the i7 4770k? My 4770k killed my Corsair H100i so I need a new cooler. I don't want to spend over $80 if I can help it. I have looked at the NH-D14 but I am seeing on OC forums that under heavy load it still hits 70-80C. I guess it would also be nice to have a...
