Need cool advice

I am going with a Asus board and i5 6600K. Seems coolers have large price differences. It was recommended I go with the Thermaltake Frio 14 71.2 com or the Noctura NH-U12S 55.5 CFM. What is a good cooler for this set up? Just beginning and am not hard core but want to experiment with a little over clocking in the future. This is my first build so my knowledge base is very low

What RAM and case are you planning to use with your Asus motherboard and CPU?

I have not purchased a case yet because I want to make sure it will fit all the other items. Such as a cooler.....

Thinking about a: Raidmax ATX-404WU ATX Mid Tower Case Thanks!

The 212 EVO is a decent cooler for a mild overclocking.

You should be fine with it unless you really want to push a higher OC where a stronger cooler or an AIO would be better.
