    Which is the easiest Air CPU cooler to install, that still provides good performance?

    Title says it all. I've been using a hyper 212 evo for years. With the new 8600K, I was thinking it's time to get a new one, but I always hated how hard it was to install the 212. Are there any good performing coolers that are easier to install?
