Look into the Corsair H70 CPU cooler with a low RPM 120mm Gentle Typhoon fan. Double check it's compatible with your perticular motherboard socket.

If your going to spend that kind of cash...get a silver arrow...beats any HXX cooler. next runner up would be D-14. I'm not an intel guy, so I cant say if it will fit your mobo/ram set up. D-14 fits ALOT of stuff if you start swaping fans around.

I wouldn't recommend the Kuhler 920. The Kuhler 620 is fine since's almost to the H70's level of effective cooling and is quiet (being 1 fan) while also being cheaper than a H70. The reason why I don't recommend the 920 is that it costs more than a H70, and in turns get louder than the H70 if you want it to cool really well. Top End air cooling can beat or match even the Kuhler 920/H70 while being marginally cheaper.

The budget and how much noise is always what needs to be addressed when this type of question pops up.
If you want a cheap cooler, go for a Hyper 212+, it cools good for it's price, but don't expect anything amazing out of it(mind you, you can OC decently with the 212+ on your 2600k, various people have reported around 4.5ghz or so with it but gets warm).
If you need a high end air cooler, you have a few options in: Silver Arrow, NH-D14, Archon, Genesis, and even the abomination that is the Susanoo.

note: Since you have gskill ripjaws x, they're mostly the same as the atypical ripjaws in terms of overall height clearance, so I think they should fit with the NH-D14 and Silver Arrow.

And finally to the op, go to this page and fill out your system info for future reference.

Hi, first of all ty for all the replies, I am looking for something around US$100/120 and the noise is not a problem for me i just want a good cooler (price/performance) since my room gets pretty hot in summer, i am from Argetina so excuse me if my english kinda sucks and keep in mind that the prices here are a bit higher than in us, so reccomend me a cooler arround 70/90 bucks. I read that most of the coolers that fit socket 1156 will fit on 1155 is that right?

Thanks.

All socket 1156 coolers do fit on 1155. I say go for the NH-D14 or Silver Arrow still, they're quiet and they are the best in air cooling.

Don't need any extra fans for the SA, the fans they come with are among the best 140mm fans available and are highly rated, they are fairly quiet while blowing a good amount of air too - too bad the color choices to put on them made them look a big fugly.
