need a budget cooler that will fit in a mini itx case

I've got the G3258 oc'd to 4.1ghz on the stock cooler, but it's still running a little hot. I want to oc it to 4.5ghz and be comfortable.

I have to squeeze this cooler into a Cooler Master Elite 130 mini ITX case, so its gotta be low profile.

TigerDirect gave me a $20 gift card so that's more or less my budget.

My build mainly functions as an HTPC so the quieter the better. Thanks!

anything up to 65mm will work but honestly I doubt youll get one for 20 bucks and on top of it you want to overclock..... you could try this one, its 45mm tall and it maaaaaaaaaay work..
