I need a cooler to fit my case since it's not the widest and I don't have room for 155mm+ height coolers. Right now my stock cooler runs like a jet engine and is giving me 40-45c, I'm open to closed loop and air coolers, my price range isn't that important but I'd prefer it not to be 80+ dollars. Thanks

I'm personally using corsair h100 and I love it, if you want something cheaper you can get their h80i cooler

Go with a Noctua cooler, they are pretty much the best

If you don't have the clearance for a standard tower cooler, something like the Noctua NH-C14 offers a lot of the performance a potentially more useful orientation. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhc14
It's a tiny bit awkward in shape, so you'll maybe have to consider how your motherboard/case is laid out, and it doesn't vent air as helpfully as a normal cooler, but it is very well reviewed amongst other low-profile coolers.

I agree with the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO recommendation. Its a great cooler at a great price.

I have the Corsair H100 and it works well but for most people I would start with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and add a second 120mm fan in a push pull set up. This gives you a cooler equal to much more expensive units.
