Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro. Fits your budget at around $30 and can handle a decent overclock. I've got my Sandy OC'd to 2.8GHz and I never get over 45C.

i've seen pictures of the copper base on the Tuniqs. i can't believe the customers are as loyal as they are. i'd be pissed if a got a pitted, scratched up piece of copper for that kind of money.

they have serious quality control issues too. i don't think you're missing out. that Arctic heatsink works fine. most of the oversized ones are for looks anyway.
