Hi all and thank you once again for your suggestions in advance!

As the title says, i'm here now, sitting in front of my new computer and everything is fine and smooth.

It's just i'm not really satisfied with my current CPU cooler.

 

It's quite loud and my cpu temp ranges from 26-30°C (usage 5-10%, just some 4-5 chrome tabs, speccy and AV on background), to 60°C (usage around 60%).

I know that this isn't something i should really worry about, but still, i'm not very comfortable with temps like the latters, i would rather keep them something about 10°C less, around the 50s.

So i'm open for suggestions about CPU coolers.

I'm using thermal paste Arctic MX-4.

I'm not going to OC in the immediate/very close future.

 

What do you suggest me?

I've heard a lot of people use NOCTUA coolers, never tried.

Hi Drillingmachine, thank you once again for your intervention.

Your suggestions about my current build have been really precious.

It's actually the first time i put some real effort in buying an aftermarket cooler, so i'm not really that much in the business.

Would 40-50€ make it worth?

Amazon (amazon.it) is my preferred choice as for "where to buy".

I cannot understand Italy, so it's somewhat hard to even browse Amazon.it.

This is OK https://www.amazon.it/Cooler-Master-212EVO-Ventola-processori/dp/B0068OI7T8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1480447094&sr=8-4

Yeah i can imagine :)
amazon.co.uk amazon.de amazon.fr are fine aswell if you are more comfortable with these... basically, every european amazon website is good, probably even the dotcom.

Which one is better? 212EVO or 212X? I see they're at the same exact price

212X is newer and a bit better.

Both are OK anyway. Just remember that both are quite tall so your case must be wide enough.

That's also good but again, very tall https://www.amazon.co.uk/raijintek-0P105250-Raijintek-EreBoss-Performance/dp/B00E5YYD9Q/ref=sr_1_5?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1480451335&sr=1-5

My case is the Thermaltake Versa H21 (without the lateral windowed panel).

I think it should fit it in, but i'll check the exact dimension of the cooler, just to be sure. Thank you.

CPU cooler height limitation: 155mm

So you will have difficulties. Want to try or should I check alternative cooler?

If you have a case that is thinner in width the CRYORIG H7 is a great choice it does not sit as tall but cools better actually.
