this is my case (refer to F-1 model). Im want to buy a new cooler because I want to retire the Intel stock cooler.

my CPU is the i5 6400.

I'd say get a new case, but you can fit a Dark Rock TF in there. 

Other than lower noise output though (in fact a DRTF will run pretty much silently with that low power of a CPU), you won't really benefit from a new cooler with just a 6400. If you also plan on upgrading your CPU soon though, then yeah why not go for it.

But still get a new case. That one has pretty much abysmal airflow, because of the restrictive design and general lack of fan mounts.

You are fine with the stock cooler imo.

Then do you really need a different cooler other than the stock one?

Or just look for something really cheap that will fit and is at least slightly better than the stock cooler.

Doesn't fit. The case only has 145mm of clearance.
