Upgrading stock cooler for less than $60

I just built a new rig with the 3700x and am looking to upgrade my CPU cooler. While I enjoy the looks of the stock cooler, I am not thrilled with the noise and performance.

For now, I honestly am only planning to stay at stock or going for a mild overclock.

I definitely like the black/dark coolers and I can go either way with RGB. I have the NZXT H500i utilizing the stock fan set up; 1 top and 1 rear exhaust.

I don't really want to spend more than $60 since I don't plan on going crazy.

After doing some research and reading various reviews, I found the following but am open to other suggestions:
- CM Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition ~ $40
- CM ML120L RGB ~ $40

What do you think/recommend for me? I appreciate any help and input!
