There isn't one that's the 'best'. Cooling is 100% about performance to price.
Obviously, the h110 > H100i > h100 > h90 > h80i > h80 > h60 2013/Refresh > H60 > H55 > h50 > h40 (not so obviously, the h70 is the worst). Pretty clear naming convention with Corsair.
As for what would be best for an i7-4770k? Well, on a delidded i7-4770K using 4x Yate Loon high 140mm fans essentially in open air, out of case, using CLU (fans about twice as strong as the stock corsair fans, which are pretty good and pretty fast), I'm maxing at ~90C on AVX small fft at 1.45vcore. So I'm going to say 1.35-1.45vcore is going to be your limit on a delidded chip depending on the fans you use and the speed you use them, less about .1v if you don't delid.
So 1.35-1.45v on a Haswell is going to result in about 4.6ghz to about 5ghz, depending on how good your chip is.
That said, anything less than an H100i is really going to be very limited. An h110 is limited too, but at least you can push the higher voltage ranges if you max out the fans.
The NZXT x60 is actually the exact same Asetek rebrand cooler (only difference is it uses 15mm fan spacing). It's usually about $10-30 cheaper depending where you buy, but I think it's worth the premium of worst service in the business vs best service in the industry, even though $90-110 is a little pricey for the performance you get, IMO.
so that mean H60 or H80 will not cooler enough on this cpu?
H80 will, but you won't be reaching high overclocks.
It kind of depends. I assume you're overclocking, otherwise this is overkill. The sad part for you is, the CPUs vary a lot in what voltage they need to hit a specific frequency. And because voltage is what determines the heat output the most on Haswell, you really don't know how hot it will get at a frequency until you have the CPU installed.
A H60 as a rule however, is just not very powerful. I'd recommend a Silver Arrow instead, and if you want to go higher, try Kraken x60 or H110/H100i. But bear in mind that for many people Haswells do run pretty hot. If you want to help ensure a good overclock you might want to go for the higher end AIO.
I think it's a little silly to recommend a heatsink like this. Heatsinks are 100% Performance to Price. And I don't think I've ever seen the Silver Arrow for a decent price. On the other hand, the NH-D14 and Logisys Assassin, which perform the same (slightly worse and a bit better, respectively), are regularly on sale or on ebay or refurb for $40-50.
if I am not oc the cpu, will the H60 be enough for it or not?
If you buy a Haswell you are kinda wasting money if you don't get a K edition, as it's that much of a value to overclock. If you don't overclock, the stock, cooler will be more than powerful enough, and you can get the cheapest tower heatsink like a Hyper 212+ if you want a larger, quieter fan.
Do not get the Hyper 212 EVO, I dont know why anyone would recommend it. It's an awful heatsink. You are better off buying a Hyper 212+ and spending $3-5 on an extra fan and high grade thermal paste, you will have better temps than an EVO, which is basically the same exact heatsink as the 212+ except it comes with a louder, more powerful, crappier fan (ie its a low quality fan ramped up to an insanely high RPM so it cools well.. at a loud noise).
Stable for me is playing a game for hours on end without a hiccup. I don't do any encoding or anything that stresses all cores 100% for more than a few minutes. Even if it wasn't stable for that, it would only take maybe 0.01V more to be stable.
No... that's not true at all. If I'm going for gaming stable I can do firstname.lastname@example.org. If I want streaming stable, which is roughly the same stability required for AVX stress testing, I can only do email@example.com (and it's looking I'll need even more, ie 1.47v).
Gaming doesnt come close to stressing out a CPU. you need way more than .01v from 'gaming stable' to be 99.9% stable, or even just stable enough to do CPU analysis or streaming.
