If you dont have a ton of money you can still get really cheap coolers which are much better than the old outdated mediocre Hyper 212 Evo
Actually it was pretty good for mid range consumer CPUs, not the flagship i7s with massive TDPs but it was perfectly good for even quite overclocked i5s. That said you're completely right about there being much better options now.
