Default Best socket 939 cooler for <$30 ?

What would you say is the best cooler for a 939 for less than 30 bucks? I'm thinking it's the Artic Cooler Freezer 64 Pro! And if y'all agree, I'm going to buy one. It can be any kind of cooler, not just air.

I second the AF64 Pro. I can't think of anything else for that price, that will perform well. Maybe the Scythe Ninja? But the AF64 Pro, has the MX-1 pad, so you don't have to get thermal paste.

It's arrived.
It's a bit more dented than his feedback profile is about to be but it's not that bad- but bad enough for him to bother putting in his ad- which he didn't.
Well I've been over to Maplin in Manchester and got the various cables and connectors, also got a 12cm case fan and two of 4 or 5cm off ebay. Prob put some pics up of it going together.
