Of these three coolers, which would be best?

I've narrowed my choice for CPU coolers down to these three choices. I'd like to know which one is better and why (if you can). Also, if you could give me a rough estimate on how well the cooler would overclock my i5-6600k, it would be appreciated.

They actually all perform around the same. I would say take the cheapest one, but The Cryorig H7 has superior mounting, looks nicer, has a longer warranty, has no RAM clearance issues, and is small.

Pretty much the best air cooler out there.

I assume you mean in this price range, right?
