Is there any 120mm 1155 CPU cooler on the market without the need to remove the motherboard to install it? Compact and easy to install on microATX motherboard
Most good coolers need access to the back of the motherboard.
Fortunately, your case is a modern one with such access. Remove the side panel and you will see.
Even pushpin mounts like the stock intel cooler should have access to the back to verify that all 4 pushpins are through the motherboard and locked.
Otherwise correct mounting is just a guess.
If you are going to buy a replacement cooler, then buy a good one.
It will serve if/when you upgrade the processor.
Noctua coolers have the easiest and simplest mounting system.
The NH-U12s costs about $65 in the US:

There is a lower cost version called the NH-U12s redux which costs $45

Another decent option is the NH-U9s, about $60:

Included will be mount hardware for lga1155 as well as am4 and lga1700.
The included instructions are quite good.
Yes, you can buy coolers that will do the job cheaper.
But I found the mounting systems to be generally poor.
I had a dickens of a time trying to mount a cm a hyper212 which is popular. The instructions were just drawings that were not very good.

To mount, you place a backplate behind the motherboard and secure with some thumb screws. Apply paste(a drop will do it)
The cooler is then screwed down to the mounting bracket.
The springs adjust to the proper pressure.
The redux version has pre-applied paste which can only be used once.
The normal version comes with a tube of paste that can remount perhaps half a dozen times.

A tip:
Before you remove the old cooler, run the cpu a bit; that will soften the paste and make it easy to remove the cpu.

You will also need to wipe off the old paste. Alcohol will do it.
72% is ok, 90% is better.
I use a lint free paper coffee filter to do the job.

arctic alpine 12 (co) is your best option, assuming you can get it at the right price . it costs only 11 euros here and is far superior to intel boxed in terms of temps and noise.

Can you tell me on Aliexpress a model of a cooler box for intel 1155 with the same dimensions as the original intel cooler but that this cooler is much superior to the original intel cooler?

i use i5 3470 but i want to keep it cool with good cooler but my case doesn't have much space so a cooler the same size as the original intel cooler and sold on aliexpress would be interesting for me

newegg is very expensive for brazil

I use newegg to show specs, not necessarily where to shop.

What is the make/model of your case?
What is the fan arrangement?
Are you using a hot graphics card?

Can you run an app like hwmonitor?
Tell us the minimum and maximum cpu temperatures.
I would expect the minimum to be 10-15c. over ambient if your stock cooler is functioning and mounted well.
If you see 100c. it means that your 3470 has throttled to protect itself.
Heavy use up to 85c. is ok.

A cooler of the same size is not going to cool any better.
