The best small sized but effective CPU cooler

Guys, can you please kindly recommend a good CPU cooler with the following traits:

My computer Specs

-Intel core i3 2100 / 3.4 GHz
-Socket LGA 1155
-My case is slightly small


-Small sized that can fit in almost all cases if there is one
-A cheap one but still effective. Even if it is making sound as long as it could help minimize my temperature, i would give it a shot.
-A good cooler that i could buy or order for shipping here in the Philippines. I cant find a good dealer of CPU coolers here in our place. Please help guys. Thank you so much,

My CPU temperature really goes like 60-65 when idle and goes up to 70 when gaming.. I really need you help..

  1. Those temperatures aren't that bad. Just make sure the pins are tightened correctly.

  8. Hi guys, i think i have 1 cooler in mind and this is the one:

    Can you give me advices if that would be a good CPU cooler? Since my case has 1 fan in the side, and 1 at the back, and other than that 2, there are no more other slots for fans. Do you think that heatsink would pair great with my poor case?
  9. well any after market cooler should be sufficient, as seen the cooler but seems to be a decent one, use the dimensions given in the link u gave, and transfer them with a tape measure into the case if ur getting at where im getting at since theres no case reference which is fine lol
