Hi

I recently bought a Zalman CNPS10X for my i5 3550 which sits in a LGA 1155 Gigabyte Z77-DS3H and even though it stated it fits the 1155 socket, I couldn't get it to fit (too much bending and pressure just to get one screw in, let alone four).

Anyway I'm looking for advice a quiet CPU cooler that will work with my CPU and Motherboard? Quiet is a must but obviously it needs to fit, any help and advice it greatly appreciated as I don't really want to waste another £30 :( 

If it helps my case is a Mid-Tower Corsair Carbide 200R

Thanks in Advance

Sorry I can't edit my message. But my budget is £25-£40 ($40-$60) :)
