What would be the best cooler to go with my i5 6500. I was going to go with the hyper 212X of the Hyper 212 Evo but the compatibility with the LGA 1511 socket. Pls help. Thanks.

The 6500 comes with its own stock cooler and thermal paste.

Unless you are using the PC in particularly hot conditions, the stock cooler will be fine specially since the 6500 cannot be overclocked.

yeah I was more looking to get an aftermarket cooler just because I had heard that the stock cooler was loud among other things.

If you are worried about noise, you can get an hyper 212 evo.

No need to really get anything big and fancy.

If you'd rather not spend as much, there are other great budget options for a stock replacement. I had this one in mind: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/deepcool-cpu-cooler-gammaxx200t

The point was noise and that cooler is pretty noisy.
