Looking for Compatible CPU Fan/Heatsink

I am planning to upgrade my CPU Fan/Heatsink but I am not sure which fan would be compatible with my motherboard and cpu. So I need help! My CPU has been overheating like crazy lazy and my computer has been shutting down randomly because of it.

Some fast replies will be a great help to me. I need to buy a new fan/heatsink as soon as possible. Thank you.

I am looking for a fan/heatsink that is easy to install right out of the box. I don't want to have to uninstall my mother board or anything to make it difficult.

  4. I added a link to the case, I have. It is a Mid Tower, so I don't want any fans that won't fit in it.

    Davcon, so you have a link for the COOL MASTER Hyper TX3, Second expansion fan, just in case, I want to upgrade.
