Cooling wise, go for the CM 212+. You won't be disappointed.
I should have said 55c for 24/7 use.
My P2 X945 has a 212+ on it. I understand all the hype over price, performance.
I could say get either Mugen 3, or 212+ comfortably.
But I would think the Mugen 3 is the slightly better cooler.
He asked for the absolute best at 50$
Here is a thread from here comparing the two.
