Hello Guys,

I need aftermarket CPU cooler (Air cooled and not water) for i5-2400 CPU.

I will be using CM 430 cabinet & Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H LGA 1155 motherboard

CM Hyper 212X is a very good Air cooler. [MENTION=148045]anirbandd[/MENTION] - has i5-2400 and it serves him well afaik.
Since you didn't specify your budget so in case you are willing to spend more then take a look into the offerings from Noctua. Afaik one of their model priced around 5k is regarded as the best air cooler ever.

Cooler Master Hyper 212X should cost you around 3k and has ample air cooling to suit your needs. It will suffice even for over clocking purpose.
There are some offerings from Deepcool under 2k which will also suffice for your needs as you don't have a CPU unlocked for over-clocking.

Just make sure that you use a decent Thermal paste when installing the CPU Cooler - a proper application/applying procedure is more important of all for best results.

the TIM that CM supplies with the 212X is good.
As Hrishi mentioned, the application method is most important.
