Are you running 70°C at full load? If so, you're still very safe on the temperature.
Where are you buying from or what options do you have for your budget with heatsinks?

As Earthdog, and myself, both said... not really worth buying a heatsink for your temps.

Again though, if you're dead set on buying one, we need to know either where you're buying from or what options you have within your budget.

You are very limited with coolers in that case. Depending on the RAM you have it may not even be possible.

Image for reference. *edit this is an elite 120.

I have a corsair h55 inside of mine, the elite 130 supports a full 120mm rad in the front so it's a great option if you want a silent option. The picture posted above is an elite 120 witch lacks the front mounted radiator option and trades it for a HDD rack and slightly smaller footprint.

For a while I had my 4790k and R9 Fury crammed in that case with the h55 ;)

Noctua NH-L9i or Cryorig C7. Cryorig is 10mm taller but performs better. I've tested both. There is no AIO which can generate less noise than these 2 coolers.

I would keep the stock cooler and spend the money somewhere else (one more ssd if any, or beer...).
