What cooler to choose

As the title says, I am looking for an adequate cooler for this build http://pcpartpicker.com/user/matt_primmer/saved/xT2ypg for about 100$.

I also wouldn't mind a second opinion on the cpu itself.

Thank you.

The Cryorig R1 Ultimate and Noctua NH-D15 are the top air coolers in that price range. Your Skylake i7 should work great paired with the GTX 980ti.

The chip listed is the locked i7, so you can't overclock it.

I didn't plan on overcloking, but i guess its good to consider getting one that be, just in case i changed my mind down the road. What would you change it to?

Thanks

if you get the locked i7 don't waste so much money on a cooler. Just get the cryorig H7 or the cryorig M9i and you will be more than cover.

They will be fine, or any inexpensive Cooler Master option such as the tx3 or T2.
