A fan replacement for my 5 years old AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor

I am looking for a good fan to replace my original stock fan of my "AMD Phenom II X4 955" Processor.. Which fan could fit perfectly and makes the processor cooler ?
Or is it better to replace the whole heatsink? Is "Hyper 212 Evo" a good replacement for my processor ? If yes, do I have to unmount the whole motherboard to mount a back plate? Or can I mount the heatsink without adding any back plate?
My case is Thermaltake Armor+.

Any suggestion or comment is very appreciated.

The hyper 212 evo is an excellent option for the 955. it runs both cool and quiet and its pretty cheap too. you might have to remove your motherboard from the case to mount it though. but the end result is worth it.
