I built my computer in november and i have been using the stock cooler since then. What is a good cpu cooler that i do not need to access the back of my motherboard to install. I was thinking of getting Thermaltake Silent

You can go with that, but read the reviews, some report issues with the HSF not seating properly with the push-pins. Please rethink your plan, you have better 120mm HSF options if you remove the motherboard.

I'd Highly recommend the Hyper 212+ for that price range, however it requires removing the motherboard.

+1 what EXT64 said.

The Coolermaster Hyper 212+ is an excellent value. If you are in the USA and shop carefully you can usually find it on sale for $29.99.

You will have to access the rear of the motherboard to install any of the tower style cpu heatsinks because they require a backplate.

If you aren't planning to overclock then the stock cooler should be more than adequate for heat. Are you shooting for more quiet?

In general, better coolers require the backplate.

I wanna get a new cooler becasue it is starting to get warmer and the last two days were close to 90 and it was running lound and faster so i just wanted to get a better fan to keep it cool in the summer.
