Default CPU Cooler recommendations

Can you guys recommend a good CPU cooler or good site that reviews them, all I found that looked decent with Google was:
http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm

I used to have this, but I'm missing some parts for it now (long story)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-001-_-Product

Anyways, I'd like to get a really good cooler again for my new cpu i7 2600K

Thanks,

Vanz

Frosty Tech has some of the best heat sink reviews, so I trust their recommendations.
Of course, they cannot review ALL coolers.

It all depends on budget and what is important for you (performance, noise, compromises...).

How much can you spend on a CPU Cooler ? If you can get the H20 920 by Antec go for it, if not the Archon is a great CPU Cooler as is the H20 620, it all depends on how much you are willing to spend.
