At 4.5GHz he shouldn't even need to add the fans, it should work with the stock 212+ fan

sickleflow are cheap onyl 7.50$ each and they`re a bit better than Stock Cooler master blademaster or 2nd Blade master can be a good choice too

I was originally going to spend 90 dollars on a cpu cooler. but if I can get the 212 +, or the 212 evo, whichever is better, and pick up some high quality fans, that are better than the stock ones. I might is well. What would be good fans to grab instead? I'm trying to keep this as silent as possible, so would noctua fans be preferable, or should I get something different?

If you're looking at swapping the fans, just grab the Thermalright True Spirit 140, Thermalright HR-02 Macho, or the NZXT Havik 140. By the time you buy the Hyper 212 and a pair of nicer fans, you're looking at the price of a nicer, cooler, and quieter heatsink.

I prefer to stick with fans that have PWM capabilities, and why no evo?

I had a 212+ and found the fan to be unbearably loud. It sounded like a jet was trying to take off in my computer. I'd just spend the little extra and grab one of the Thermalright heatsinks.
