I am looking for a red CPU cooler that will overclock a i7-4790k to 4.5 steadily, I would like the CPU cooler to be red/black. Please have it be under $60.

The Phanteks coolers may be a good choice for that price.

Again they don't match the OP's red/black request.

I completely agree, from tests I've seen it matches and even surpasses some AIO watercooling units for cooling. Unfortunately it doesn't meet the OP's color/price requests, for that I'd go with this:

How good is the fan in it? Should I replace it with a higher end fan?

Should be noted that this cooler actually uses 2 fans
