Now im using an MSI 870-C45 AMD 770 Chipset (Socket AM3) DDR3 Motherboard with a AMD Phenom II X2 Dual Core 555 3.20GHz Black Edition (Socket AM3), i dont really wish to use the stock cooler that came with the CPU, so heres the questions.

I have the stock cooler off my PhenomII X4 965, will this be better than the one that came with the 555 ?
If not can anybody recommend the best low profile cooler that will be quiet and really cool ? The head room for the cooler can not exceed 11cm/110mm.
