So during transportation my acrylic case practically got cracked in half, and my CPU heat sink and fan broke off.
I know I need knew thermal paste, but I wanted to ask opinions on this case

with this heat sink?

I have an intel i5 4430 that seems to be overheating very easily, should I just reapply thermal paste??or get new heatsink + paste??

Thank you for the help.

And if it isn't any trouble could someone tell me what the benefit would be of overclocking my system??

Thank you for letting me know they didn't work. I don't know why,

The case is a Sentey Burton series gs-6500
And the heatsink is a Thermaltake frio overclocking-ready.

Would there be compatibility issues??

Actually, the links work... they both go to Newegg's home page is what I meant.

Yes, the case and heat sync/fan will be fine for your system. But check the back of your MB to see if there is components near the 4 mtg. holes that the new backplate's feet might lay on. Unlike the stock cooler with simple push-pin posts, this cooler needs more support and its backplate has wide feet.
