Ok I have an amd fx 8350 cpu and I'm currently using the amd stock heatsink abd I have to say that it sucks pretty bad so I was asking for advice on what fan and heatsink I should buy that's around $30 that cools decent and doesn't make a ton of noise. Also it needs to have a height below 160 mm. The last time I posted a message about this someone told me to get a liquid cooler that didn't even fit am3+ sockets so I want a fan and heatsink not liquid cooling! Thanks for any help in advance! All Desktop information is below.

INFO:
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AMD 970 Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Mid-Tower Gaming Case
CPU: AMD FX 8350 4.00 Ghz
OC: none

hey I don't know if that will fit, my case is pretty wide but it says it supports up to 160 mm. This fan is 159 mm in height. But I have a case fan right where the cpu fan will hit so I need it a little shorter than that no bigger than 155 mm in height please I will look more into the one that was said earlier but I would like a shorter one if it is possible. thanks

I told you in the original post that I'm not looking for liquid coolers, because I used them previously and they didn't work with my mother board
