Right now I'm using the e8400 stock fan, and my temps at full load sometimes exceeds 65c, so I'm worried sick!, it idles between 35-40, but it has too damn high temps at full load, so I need a good enough cooler, small one preferred.
I don't care about the noise, but if it brings a fan speed controller better.

I'm looking at scythe katana3, but the reviews I'm reading, doesn't improve much compared to the stock fan..., My price range would be 30€ top.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Here is a link to a very good web site with useful information about low profile cpu heatsinks that will help you make an informed decision:

You can use the Google embedded search feature at the web site to find more information about heatsinks for specific cpu sockets.
