Cooling i5 3570k

Hey guys,
So I just upgraded my case from an Antec 200S to a Corsair 540. The extra space is great and cooling is awesome except for on my cpu. In the Antec case I could play BF4 and not break 70 C, with this new case it hangs out at 85 C. So I'm trying to figure out a way to cool it down, or at least figure out why its doing this now, I suspect its the extra volume. Currently, I have the stock intel fan on the CPU, which also might be the problem. So upgrading the CPU fan, I'm looking into air cooling or liquid cooling. GPU is fine so I don't really want to get into a custom loop. Eventually I plan on overclocking once it is necessary.
-So my question: How much cooling do you recommend?
I have my 140mm fans up top so I'm looking at the H90 or the H110. Also read that the Phanteks PH-TC14PE is good.
Here are the links:
Here are my components:
i5 3570K
AsRock Z77 Mobo
GSKill 8GB Ram
3 Cooler Master 120mm sickle flow fans
2 Corsair 140mm and 1 120mm fan.

  1. At least if you get the Phanteks PH-TC14PE which is one of the best, it will cope will with the extra heat of overclocking and should last for a long time.
