whats the best cooler for am3 thats under $60, im considering the coolermast v6 or v6gt cause i have the HAF932 case and it would all look good together, also considering a frio, they are on sale atm for $33 instead of $57. any suggestions? size is not an issue i have alot of room, also i want it to look decent and perform top notch as the 970be is going to be oc'ed to over 4ghz

If you can stretch your budget a few dollars more then I would suggest the Noctua NH-U12P. Otherwise, go for the V6 GT.

I'm not sure if something new has come out in the past few months, but before that the top coolers were

Prolimatech Megahalems
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
Thermalright Venomous X
some Noctua 12 or 14
Corsair H70

those are basically on the top of every comparison list. Some might exceed your budget but the TRUE can be found for about $60 on newegg.
