The amount of spam on this site made me cynical. I appologize.
There are 3 things you can try before getting the aftermarket cooler (long term it is recommended though that you get one):
The reverse of OCing, you should be able to do it from the BIOS options, that's why i asked about what motherboard you have. After lowering the voltage test stability of the system by using a stress test software like OCCT
. Your chip is unlocked so lowering the frequency to achieve stability at lower voltages should be quite easy, just change the CPU multiplier.
2. Lower the CPU fan speed
Do this also from the BIOS. With my older Asus mobo i can choose between presets like Silent, Normal or Turbo. it really makes a difference during idle or low loads. This should be done after undervolting and underclocking. Use again something like OCCT to check temperatures during high loads. Note that your chip's maximum temperature is 61 degrees Celsius.
3. Depending on what case and fans you have you could reconfigure the airflow in the case to optimize it around the CPU socket. But that's kind of difficult with the stock fan since it's a blow down style HSF. With tower coolers you can direct the airflow in a certain direction allowing you to create a wind tunnel effect.
Lastly i also think that for your budget the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ or Evo is a good choice, but since we don't know what case you have, you should check to see if your case's width allows the installation of such a tall cooler. Iirc the 212 Evo is 152mm tall, but you should througly check the specs before you make the purchase.

Read again what i wrote. I never said anything about text font, i was reffering to you're grammer or spelling errors.
