Right now I'm looking at the V6, the Frio, or the Hyper 212+. Which one should I get?

Hyper 212+ in my opinion.

Or a Scythe cooler, they seem to always come out near the top in tests.

212+ all the way. I do not think you have to wait any longer. Get it.

EDIT: Or mine for slightly more. It held my 2600k with HT on at 65C at 4.8GHz, but it was extremely hot at 5GHz... About 93C!

Both will be about the same. 5 on air needs a little more pricey heatsink. Noctua D-14

I'm still here.

Hyper 212 is a good cooler for the price. Any air cooler with 5 copper heatsinks or more will perform about as well as a hyper 212 however.

What matters most is the number of heat pipes.

V6 is the best performer, but very loud on high.
Hyper 212+ is best performance/$ and can take custom fans easily
