Aftermarket Heatsink for i5-3570k

Hello everybody,

So I have an i5-3570k Ivy Bridge cpu with the stock heatsink installed (MOBO is in my signature). I'm currently getting around 60C on my cpu when gaming (all settings on Extreme/Ultra), and around 40C on my MOBO. I know this isn't that high of a temperature, but I'd rather be safe with a more effecient aftermarket cooler. Any suggestions on a good aftermarket heatsink? I'm not getting into water cooling, as I won't be overclocking that much, if any at all. Also, what is a good thermal paste brand that I should get along with my heatsink? Thanks!!!

    Is this a noise thing? I'm happy with the fan that comes with the 212, and the Scythe seems to move less air.

    The GentleTyphoon achieves high airflow volume and low noise with the newly designed impeller, enabling silent cooling of the latest devices which run very hot. Gentle Typhoon 120 mm fans produce especially high static pressure combined with optimized fan blade design.
    Model Name:
    GentleTyphoon 120 mm Fan

    Model-No.:
    D1225C12B1AP-11 (500 rpm)
    D1225C12B2AP-12 (800 rpm)
    D1225C12B3AP-13 (1,150 rpm)
    D1225C12B4AP-14 (1,450 rpm)
    D1225C12B5AP-15 (1,850 rpm)

    Technical Data:
    500 rpm: 0.015 A - 5 dBA - 31 m³/h
    800 rpm: 0.023 A - 9 dBA - 48 m³/h
    1,150 rpm: 0.034 A - 16 dBA - 63 m³/h
    1,450 rpm: 0.049 A - 21 dBA - 85 m³/h
    1,850 rpm: 0.083 A - 28 dBA - 98 m³/h

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    while the hyper 212+ stock fan :

    * 13 - 32 dBA
    *600 - 2000 R.P.M. (PWM)
    *21.2 - 76.8 CFM
    *0.40 - 3.90 mmH2O

    do i need to explain any further to differentiate between the noise levels and the air flow ? : )

    cheers!
