Alternatives to the Hyper 212+/Evo for budget cooling

Currently these are cheaper (right at this moment in time) than either the 212+ or Evo, and all perform about the same (ie: good for overclocking quad cores or mild overclock on six core):

Nothing against the 212+ or EVO. They are great coolers for the $25-$30, but most often they are priced much higher (due to demand). Also some people just might want to try something different.
