CPU Cooler < 140mm

I'm looking for a CPU Cooler that is less than 140mm in height (based on case spec sheet) to put on a socket LGA 1150. The case in question is a Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX and this is a budget build so i would prefer something <$40. I was looking at Cooler Master Hyper TX3, but heard the performance is not as good as the 212 Evo(which is too tall for this case). Any suggestions would be very welcomed.

I actually have that one in another system, but the height is a problem at 155mm. I tested it last night and it was just shy of fitting in the case by a few mm.
