If your case has the clearance then Noctua all the way. NhD15 is massive but unrivalled in terms of performance. 

 

If you wanna go for something slightly less pricey then NH U14S for a single tower cooler.

Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo (less than 50)

 

Dark Rock Pro/ Dark Rock Slim is another option.

 

There is also a Noctua single fan model as well.

I found one that also looks promising, it’s the nactua NH-U12S, you reckon that’s good?

Scythe Ninja 5 is cheaper and better if you have the clearance. What case and RAM (specifically the model) are you using?

First, please hit the Quote button so that people can see when you reply to them.

Second, The Scythe Ninja 5 is compatible so I would get that.

3.9ghz isn't much. You can try the stock cooler first and decide on whether or not to replace it depending on the results.
