Help finding overclocking cooler

I'm looking to overclock an AMD FX-6300 3.5Ghz in my budget build, but I'm having trouble finding a cooler that replace the stock one. Can I get some suggestions for a cooler that will work under $30? Other Info: I'm using an Apevia X-Trooper-Jr as my case.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It generally goes for right around $30.

Did not find any cooler height clearance specs listed at the manufacturer's website. You will need to measure the clearance yourself. If it does not fit a 212 Evo, then be prepared to exceed stated budget.

A reviewer on Newegg said he could barely get a TX3 to fit so that is a starting point. The TX3 is 139 mm high.

For your price rate Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO are best.
