Suggestion for a budget cpu cooler

I've a rig with stock intel cooler fan. Ideally the temp is around 50-60 C. Under stress, cpu temps reach 100 C easily. Please give me suggestions for a good upgrade.

 

Processor : Intel i5-4460 with stock cooler

you need to make sure the cooler is mounted properly, with thermal paste underneath. sounds like a serious error in the CPU's mount, the stock Intel cooler can keep the quad core i7s from throttling just fine.

 

did you make sure all the plastic pins are secured to the motherboard properly?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

A bit it depends of geographical location. In EU there's probably best - Gelid Phantom. But I assume this is not the location.

... but I'm no expert

Make sure that the plastic ends are fully expanded on the back of the motherboard and that the pins are rotated clockwise / locked into place. 

What case and ram are you using? 

Where are you shopping / located? Budget?
