Best heatsink under 40$ for a Mini ITX case/mobo?

I recently just built my computer with the A10-5800k and that baby runs HOT. (140F~) My brother said he would buy me a better heatsink if it's under / around 40$. I was really liking the Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 but I just learned it's almost the size of my mobo and it probably wont fit.
I'm at a loss - what should I get?!
(btw, here's my motherboard, and I have the Bitfenix Prodigy case)

  1. The Prodigy can fit up to a 175mm heatsink, so the Hyper Evo would actually fit fine. If you're concerned about the weight, just go with something smaller, like this:

  2. First your temp readings are most likly wrong, i have yet to find a good apu temp program. I use two temp probes when building apu's just because of the wild numbers. I have found closed loop water coolers to work best with apu's
    this one is on sale COOLER MASTER Seidon 120M $24.99 after rebate
  3. ~140 F = ~60C

    That's high, but not too high.

    The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will suit your needs fine. Xigmatek Gaia will be good too.
