My amd fx 8150 has been running hot lately when playing games such as Far Cry 3. It reaches temperatures of 70 so i decided to get a new heatsink. The stock one is also very loud.
Im planing on getting this one:
but i dont know if it will function any better than the stock cooler that came with my 8150 or if im just making a bad purchase. Could i get some advice on what to buy?

The Hyper 212 is revered as the best cooler for the money (about the same as the one you picked)
