Black CPU Fan Cooler for under $60

I want to have a black CPU cooler that is both reliable, quiet, and takes heat off an Intel i5-6600k. Any options? I did consider Noctua, but the colors just do not match my dark inside unless there is some way to change the colors without damaging the lifespan or parts.

There is the be quiet! Dark Rock 3 which is completely black but to go with the black and kinda white motherboard, you could also get a Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK.

Thanks a lot, the CPU cooler's colors does fit very well with my Phanteks case, and I never knew that Phanteks made CPU coolers. Thanks for the suggestion. They all seem to have great reviews for lower prices.

I would go with a Phantek TCDX12 or a Be Quiet! Dark Rock 3.
