Im using a the stock cooler for my AMD A8 5600k. I currently just bought a new hard drive and some new ram and I want to get the temps down on the CPU. So Im looking to buy a 3rd party air cooler thats not hard to install and will give me some better temps.

My budget is about 25$ and I need it to fit this smaller case. Im not 100% sure if its Micro ATX or Mid tower.. its about as tall as my forearm and is made by raidmax...

My mobo is a Biostar A55ML2 I believe its FM1 port but not 100% sure.

Any recommendations would be extra helpful (preferably would like Amazon links as I get free 2 day shipping with prime)

* PC SPECS *

CPU- AMD A8 5600k
GPU- GTX 750 1gb
MOBO- Biostar A55ML2
MEM- 6gb DDR3 1333
WIN- Windows 10 Home
PSU- Logysis 480w

The possible height of the cooler depends on the distance from the mobo to the case's side wall, not it's height or what size mobo it can take. Model of case would help.

eh, I needed some paste for the future anyways because I lost my arctic silver. And Im sure its a bit better than the stock paste that comes with the cooler. And yea I was gonna get somethin a little better but Im impatient and on a budget its LONG overdue that I got a better cooler. T

Thanks for all the help guys!
