How do i know if a cpu heatsink is better than my stock heatsink?

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?
