X Dream 4 vs stock intel cooler

Hi, my dad was cleaning his room today and found an old X Dream 4 Cpu cooler. He said I could have it or give it to a friend/etc. So I was wondering whether it would be worth using over the stock intel cooler I have for my i3-2120

  1. I believe that's a 775 cooler and it won't work with your 1155 motherboard.

    It is a 775 cooler. Do those not work on 1155? From what I found they should, and it looks right, but I'm not sure
  3. SOME motherboards have 775 mounting points - it MIGHT fit - it might be off on a slight angle.

    That cooler really isn't much better than the factory anyways.

    It was designed for a 65W core2 and you have a SB i3 65W.

    At the end of the day you're talking about a $12 cooler.
