Should I buy a 3rd party CPU cooler?

Hello. My PC has an Intel i5-4560 (Non-overclockable) CPU with stock Intel fan. My CPU temps seem to be fine with the stock cooler. It is 40C while idle and around like 50-60 ish while gaming. However, it is kind of loud. I know the sound is from CPU cooler. I was thinking of getting the Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo because of the sound. My question is if it is worth it to buy it just for noise? Will it be less or more quiet? Will it cool any better? Thank you.

    If noise is annoying to you I'd recommend getting it.

    You also find the 212 Evo will require cleaning less often as the design means less dust will be stuck in the cooling fins.
