I do alot of builds in older case for family and whatnot, cheap coolers like say a hyper 212 are too tall for these cases.

Would would you guys recommend that's cheap.

Depending on the socket used, you can go with:

1) Cooler Master Vortex Plus for $25.99 newegg linky

or if you want it cheaper:

2) ZALMAN CNPS7000V(AL)-1-PWM for $11.71 newegg linky

They're both decent enough coolers for stock speeds. There might be others that fall inbetween pricing wise/performance wise, but those are the 2 that come in mind off the top of my head.
