    Ok, so the spring has arrived, and with it, Im hitting really crappy cpu temps. Im even running my 2500 stock, and its reaching just below 60 C while playing games, so I need better cooling than the crap that came with it. So what I am asking is for some suggestions on BEST POSSIBLE air cooling(heatsink and fan) for under 100$. I dont care about loudness, I just care about how well it cools, and Im also going to need some thermal paste, since I dont have any. Thanks to anyone that can help me out.
