I need a new SMALL cooler for AMD 965 BE

I have the Amd 965 BE using the stock cooler, but it is loud as hell and makes this odd grinding/whining sound.

it still works it just sounds terrible every now and then under heavy load.

I do not want to spend much money because this is an old build that im just using until I finish the new build.

it would probably be a big pain to install something like a CM 212 because its a mATX board and a mid tower case.

any recommendations? I dont really need it to be "better" than the stock fan. I just need it to not make that horrific sound.

I also dont really care if its silent, just quietish. hah. thanks.

Budget : As cheap as possible while still being at least as good as the stock fan.

if your case has a CPU cut out i would definitely go with the cm hyper 212 evo i installed mine today and once the backplate was on the rest was easy to install just make sure that the clearance from the motherboard to the side panel is about 160 mm or 16 cm. It keeps my 955 be at 38oC at 40% fan speed and the only thing that prevents my pc from being silent is my psu fan.

If it fits , 144mm high it will do a great job cooling your cpu .

are there any that are cheap and somewhat decent that are like a stock fan? just a heatsink straight on the processor with a fan on top? i dont really need anything fancy for this build, i might just use my old AMD 9650 x4 2.3ghz fan. i dont remember it making all this noise
