If you're upgrading to liquid cooling soon, then just grab a good cheap 212+ or evo. Great cheap coolers that will do what you want with good temps until you get your liquid cooling in

True, but since it's cheap I think OP can spend a little extra on fans if need be

Silverstone HE01 - Good cooler with good RAM clearance
NH-D14 - Old but good
Phanteks tc14pe
Prolimatech Megahalems
Xigmatek Dark Knight II
Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E
CM 212 EVO/212+
I believe that's all the good, well known and tested air coolers.

The Dark Knight 2 is tough to beat for the price. Got a good fan on it and xigmas are usually pretty quiet from my experience. Put the other 50 in a wc jar.
