yeah, you can get to that clock speed with that stock cooler, but if you are willing to spend $40, you can get a better lifetime out of your CPU and you can keep the temps down.

I would get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, it's an insane CPU Cooler for the price and if you wanted you can clock it even higher and the temps would be less then before.

my limit is 35$ for a cooler and it has to be under 160mm so i would say 156mm is good

160mm is huge, and 160mm I have never hear of either, that one is 120mm and is the best one around for the price, it is $39.99, that's an insane cooler for the price and I wouldn't go anything cheaper to be honest, putting the extra $4.99 is defiantly worth it.

That is why i suggest getting the cooler master Hyper 212 EVO, It'll fit but is $39.99, best in it's range by a long shot.

The hyper 212 is 159mm tall. It won't fit. The Hyper TX3 will fit and is a decent little cooler for a 3570k. It is far better than stock. I used one for a build because Microcenter had an open box one for like $10 and it fit the person's budget well enough that we were allowed to get a better motherboard for the build.
