My case is a Xigmatek Octans 236B, my motherboard is a Prime H310M-D and my CPU is an i5-8400. I am currently running a stock cooler and I want to switch to a good air cooler. My budget is RM200 (equates to about 48-50USD as of today). If you guys could fill me in cooler recommendations (as I'm not very knowledgeable with coolers) that would be awesome.

The stock air cooler can and will get the job done. If you're looking for aesthetics and lower temps, than a cheap aftermarket cooler, like the one's made by Coolermaster(Hyper 400 series) will also do you good. Your motherboard and processor will not allow you to overclock so drop a lot of money on the cooler isn't advised.

This comes in at nearly half your budget.

Ah, I see. I was a bit worried as when gaming (specifically warframe, high settings) my temps are about 80-88C most of the time and it spikes up to 90C+ sometimes. Is it safe for that range of temps?
