Default cpu cooler question

hey guys,
i just built my first water cooling system, works perfectly fine (was so happy), however i was going to put my coolermaster v6gt into my htpc/lan gaming pc that's sits by the tv and then i may have accidentally dropped it. (lost my hardware breaking virginity). i save a bit of money with my water cooling system about $200 and was wondering what cpu cooler you would recommend staying under the $200 mark.

You're looking for a cooler for your HTPC/LAN rig right?
Unless you go water cooling for it staying under $200 for an air is guaranteed.

I'd say if you liked the V6 GT get another one, they are a great cooler for the price (~$60 at Mwave).
Or if you're feeling saucy, grab a Noctua of almost any flavor that will fit, like the NH-U12P/C12P or NH-D14/C14.

Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
